Experts agree that breakfast is the most important meal of your child's day. Here are some breakfast recipes for kids and teens. Some are quick to make for on-the-go days and all will help your teen start their day off right.

  • English Muffin Breakfast Pizza Recipe
    These easy breakfast pizzas can be pre-assembled the night before and heated in a toaster oven or microwave. Your teen is capable of doing the heating on their own, but a preteen will need to be supervised for the first few times they attempt it as you will want them to pay attention and not forget it in the oven. There is nothing that sets the mood for a bad day at school than setting the fire alarm off in the morning.

It is inexpensive, quick and filling, a sandwich recipe that they could remember if they were on their own and needed to eat. More than one young man has let me know they did just that.
