Numerous processed cereals include a lot of sugar, which can cause blood sugar to surge before falling a few hours later (via Healthline). Simple carbs are metabolised within 15 to 60 minutes, according to Feit. Simple carbs include fruit, fruit juice, milk, honey, maple syrup, high fructose corn syrup, and all sorts of sugar.
According to Feit, including fibre in your child's breakfast can prevent hunger. Dietary fibre may even help kids' cognition, according to a 2015 study published in the Journal of Nutrition. Plant-based goods contain both the soluble and insoluble kinds of fibre. Insoluble fibre maintains your body healthy by transporting everything through the gastrointestinal system without absorbing water, continues Feit. Water is absorbed by soluble fibre, which results in a fullness sensation.
Feit advises including a little healthy fat in your child's breakfast every morning. According to Feit, "Fats have been demonised for a very long time, but not all fats are made equal." They do offer twice as many calories as protein and carbohydrates, making them a good source of energy. To acquire both healthy fat and fibre, Feit advises eating a slice of whole-grain bread with avocado and tomato.
