September is All American Breakfast Month!

Breakfast is one of my most favorite meals. There's nothing better than coffee---Belgium waffles - or eggs, toast, hash browns and coffee to start the day out right.  Most often though, my breakfast consists of two granola bars---and lots of coffee!

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It's important for kids to have something to eat in the morning before they head off to school. Who can learn on an empty stomach??

Here an activity that you might find useful in your classroom---or for planning and working with your kids at home!

The activity uses the MyPlate food groups and asks students to classify the breakfast food pictures according to their correct food group.

Optional Classroom Activity:

1. Ask students to fill in the plate by drawing or writing what that had for breakfast.
2. Lead a class discussion on the topic of healthy foods.  Ask students to rate if their breakfast was healthy or not healthy.
3. Continue the discussion by asking student to share what they could change to make their meal a healthy one.
