September is Better Breakfast Month, and with fall creeping up on us and kids heading back to school, there’s no time like the present to celebrate the most important meal of the day. Many studies have linked eating breakfast to good health – it can help boost metabolism so you burn calories throughout the day and it also provides energy to help improve memory and concentration so you can focus at work and school. In celebration, we have four family-friendly brain healthy Wild Blueberry breakfast recipes.
Did you know that Wild Blueberries are proven to improve brain function at every age? For children, Wild Blueberry consumption is linked to better focus at school, while for adults they’re linked to improving cognitive function and memory recall. So, no matter what age you are, go wild at breakfast, and support brain health. To make it easy, we’ve categorized the recipes for all types of households so you can match it up with the family’s morning regimen style.
The on the go family…
For family’s that are always on the go, the easiest way to get a healthy breakfast in is to use your blender. If this rings true for you, we recommend the Wild Blueberry Brain Boosting Morning Smoothie. This smoothie recipe only takes one-to-two minutes to prep and is something that every member of your family will enjoy as you head out the door. Just throw it in a travel mug to take it in the car with you!
The always prepared for anything family….
For parents who prefer to have the day planned out ahead of time, recipes you can make the night before are key. Wild Blueberry Mini Muffins are a kid-approved option that are easy to make while still packing in the health benefits. Grab a bag of frozen Wild Blueberries at the grocery store to have them at the ready for muffin making.
For the “let’s sit down and eat” family…
For families that make time to sit down together and enjoy a meal at the table, these Belgian Waffles with Wild Blueberry Cream are a delicious option. While the preparation takes a little longer, we promise that each delectable bite will be worth your kitchen labor of love.
The leave it to the last-minute family…
We’re all just trying to get through the day, and sometimes busy families don’t have the luxury of daily preparation time. Having something that you can just grab from the dry pantry and whip up is so important for the moments when you’re running around like crazy – that’s where Maine Wild Blueberry Granola comes in. The good news is that this granola stays good for up to 10 days in an airtight container at room temperature.
