I have 5 kids and 4 are already attending school, 2 must be ready by 5 AM while the older 2 must start getting ready by 6 AM. The youngest, I pray everyday that he won’t wake up until 7 AM. It’s a daily challenge but mostly it’s a win. I have with me a support system that makes everything seems easy. For one, my husband is trying to be the one to pacify Marius when he wakes up earlier than 7 AM. Husband usually sleeps at 2, I can’t thank him enough for doing that extra job. My mother on the other hand, help me with what the kids need.
Breakfast is one thing that I always try to be the one to prepare. It’s my way of saying or showing to them that even with the new baby, I still have time to take care of them. I make sure that they always eat a complete breakfast. One that is loaded with carbohydrates, protein, and fiber from fruits.
We try to alternate it with bread and Potatoes and I know you are going to ask why! So here’s 5 reasons why we include US Potatoes in my kids’ breakfast:
It is easy to prepare and versatile. From fried to bake to even making it in a soup. Potatoes can be served as snacks, breakfast in our case, or even as a main dish. Here’s a sample of a US Potato used as main dish:
US Potatoes is delicious and my kids really love the taste no matter the recipe is. Of course our favorite will always be fried (specially the criss cross one) but we’re also inclined to choose US Potatoes Croquette.
US potatoes provides the energy, carbohydrates and potassium kids need to power performance throughout the school day. And that is the reason why this mom is all about potatoes. Being in the school for more almost 10 hours can be really tiring. I make sure that they have the energy they need by serving me the right food in the morning. US Potatoes is an ideal part of their breakfast because of the energy and potassium it provides. It’s also good for me since I am breastfeeding. Potatoes’ a good source of Potassium.
