Make breakfast the night before. All you have to do is reheat it in the morning and have your delicious breakfast.

If you don’t want to make the whole breakfast, then you can prepare ingredients for your healthy breakfast meals the night before. Take out pans and bowls that you might need and prepare all the ingredients. So, in the morning it is all ready for you to use.

    My kids are all about granola – it just runs out so fast! (We like to make our own instead of buy.) Luckily, my 11-year-old is an awesome granola maker. Cereal is fast and easy, but it’s not cheap and doesn’t fill them up, so I love these ideas.
