The kids are back in school, which means that nice and slow summer schedule is long gone. Now it’s early mornings and permission slips, ballet classes and basketball games. In the whirlwind of activity, it can be easy to skip breakfast in favor of just getting out the door in time. But with a few back-pocket recipes, prepping healthy breakfast options can be a lifesaver on busy mornings and help keep both you and the kids fueled long through the morning.

It’s also nice to have a few after-school snacks on hand to help hungry kiddos power through homework time or accommodate evening study groups with friends.
