3 DELICIOUS BREAKFAST IDEAS FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE

In Evergreen, by Healthy Family Living TeamLeave a Comment

There’s no need to complicate mornings already busy mornings with an elaborate breakfast. And who says vegetables need to be served only at lunch or dinner? Bring them out at breakfast too! Rules around food are so taxing and constraining. If breakfast is a time of day when your little one eats well, then use this time to pack in some nutrition. Sometimes mornings are when babies are their most alert and playful, so it’s also a good time for them to be given the opportunity to explore the textures and tastes of food. Make food exploration an activity!

When we asked our friends at Cerebelly for some tips on keeping mornings easy and nutritious, they had 3 amazing, veggie forward ideas that we are excited to share with you!  

We love that this company was founded by a scientist. Since a baby’s brain doubles in size by its first year and reaches nearly 80% of development by the age of 5, this critical age window is when the most developmental foundations are forming in the brain, such as seeing, hearing, and memory.

As a neurobiologist, Cerebelly 's founder knew there were key nutrients that were critical for each of those milestones, and as a mom, she needed the convenience of premade food. Her research showed that 16 essential nutrients were critical for optimal brain development, yet the average baby puree only had only a fraction and not even in meaningful amounts. After years of development with a team of scientists, doctors, and nutritionists, Cerebelly was created as a natural extension to their founder’s work — a first-of-its-kind food brand that satisfies parents, kids & growing brains alike. Now parents have easy grab & go options that are nutritious & delicious.
