National Nutrition Month

March is designated as National Nutrition Month. It's a great time to focus on eating a wide variety of colorful,nutrient rich foods, eating a hearty breakfast and take every opportunity to be more active outside. If you're like me and struggle with eating breakfast, here are some breakfast ideas you may want to try for your family or yourself:

  • Get Moo-ving: Make a protein-packed breakfast shake by blending low-fat chocolate milk, a tablespoon of peanut butter,half a banana and some ice cubes. Or, make a smoothie with low fat yogurt, your favorite fresh or frozen fruit and a few ice cubes. Mix in a blender.

  • Benedict Bagel: Layer a slice of ham,Swiss cheese and a poached egg on a toasted whole-wheat bagel for a protein packed breakfast.

  • Breakfast Split: Skewer a medium banana, roll in your favorite flavored yogurt and then in whole grain cereal for a creamy,crunchy start to the day.

You can find more recipes and great information at Do you have a favorite breakfast to entice a non-breakfast lover? I'd love to hear from you!

Hope you have a dairy good day!
