When you are a parent, logistics are everything. Whether you have 1 child or 5, it’s all about making sure that you have everything organized so that the kids are always clothed, fed, have their school work done, are at their respective activities (with clean uniforms on), playdates are scheduled, and then, to top it off, there is laundry, a house to keep tidy, pets to care for, making sure the bills are paid on time and, oh yes, many times, your own job to go to each and every day. With so much going on at once, how does it all get done without you losing your mind?
I have been teaching swim lessons since I was 17 years old. No one needed to tell me the importance of learning how to swim and what an impact it can have in a child’s life. However, having a child changes how you view everything.
Breakfast - The Most Important Part of the Day! Study after study has shown breakfast to be linked to your best health! And Monday after Monday has proved that it’s the easiest meal for us to run out of the house without. Busy lives are interfering with a chance at better memory and concentration, a healthy heart, and maintaining fit, happy bodies. Breakfast helps to replenish low blood sugars first thing in the morning, and skipping the A.M. meal means that your body may not have the energy it needs to help your brain and muscles work their best. It’s also very likely that if we don’t get in some vital nutrients first thing, we’ll not be able to consume the recommended daily allowance of vitamins, minerals and nutrients throughout the day that bodies need…meaning that often we’re far more likely to overeat the wrong foods later in the day.
