Healthy On-The-Go Breakfasts

It’s extremely important to get a good, healthy diet in with everyone’s busy lives these days, and since everyone seems to be looking to lose weight, maintain a healthy weight or simply eat healthier, it’s always a challenge to find a diet that will work best for you. Kids, of course, should not be dieting, ever. The simple rule of limiting processed foods, candy, sodas and other unhealthy foods is efficient enough, but adults find it much harder to balance their weight out. Many kids think that skipping breakfast is a good idea- in fact, it’s not at all. As you all have probably heard, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and studies show that skipping breakfast slows down metabolism rates, too. However, it’s not always convenient to find a time to fit in that extra 15 minutes in the mornings, so here’s a list of foods that are healthy, easy, and ready for on-the-go people.

1. Special K Low Fat Granola
