Healthy Breakfast

The Start Smart Eating & Reading program developed by 4-H Extension at Oregon State University has 5 lessons to introduce healthy eating at breakfast. Each lesson centers around a different food group, a read-aloud book, a lesson explaining how the food group helps your body, and a simple song to help remember the information (CD included). There are also directions for an easy food preparation activity for each lesson: Morning Smiles English muffins, Wrap-it-up tortillas, edible veggie art, Grain-ola cereal mix, and Yogurt-Fruit Parfait. Students track their own breakfasts on a calendar. Short newsletters in English and Spanish are available for parents.
