Sometimes, however, a simple yet beautiful presentation is all it takes for your children to know that they are special and that you value spending time with them in the morning. This breakfast would be sweet to serve in the morning after a sleepover party, or as a tea party meal. Perhaps a Saturday morning family breakfast? It would also be a great way to simply say, I am glad we get to spend the day together.
This breakfast features healthy, vitamin-packed fruits and protein-rich eggs. Eating a meal like this for breakfast will help the kids to have the energy they need throughout the whole morning.
Fresh fruit (grapes, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
Eggs and country ham
Cheddar cheese (optional for the scrambled eggs)
Scramble eggs and diced country ham. Top with cheddar cheese if desired. Spoon into small bowl or ramekin in the center of a plate. Slice grapes and strawberries in half so that they will lay flat on the plate. Arrange them in a beautiful floral pattern around the eggs – or use any design you like. The end result will be a beautifully appealing, healthy breakfast.
Health Benefits of this Dish:
Eggs are considered to be one of the most perfect sources of protein. Protein is vital for kids to enjoy sustained energy throughout the day and build muscle as they grow. Some people worry about the cholesterol found in eggs. As I learned from this Cholesterol article by The Exercise Coach (where I love to work out), cholesterol is not what causes heart disease. I was surprised to learn that it is actually sugar, which causes inflammation, which leads towards all of the problems related to heart disease. It is far better for you to eat an egg than to eat a bowl of sugary cereal. SOO much better!
Raspberries are higher in fiber than even blueberries. They are a great source of antioxidants, and can even help to regulate your mood. Check out this article to learn more.
Blueberries are another antioxidant-rich superfood, boasting a low glycemic index, and providing an excellent source of vitamin K. Read more here.
