Good Nutrition Can Boost School Performance, Expert Says

One of the best ways to jump-start a successful school day is to provide children with a nutritious morning meal, according to an expert from Cincinnati Children’s.

Debby Boutwell, a clinical dietitian in the division of nutrition therapy at Cincinnati Children’s, says that doesn’t necessarily mean serving traditional breakfast foods. Boutwell recommends a breakfast that includes high-fiber grains, fruit and dairy products. Here are some options:

  • Fiber rich and whole-grain cereals with low fat milk
  • Yogurt and berries
  • Toast, eggs and 100 percent fruit juice
  • Whole-wheat bagels and cheese or eggs with low-fat milk
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwich with low-fat milk
  • Grilled cheese sandwich with 100 percent fruit juice
