Dads, tots and breakfast – an everyday routine

Did you know that 53 percent of children six and under eat breakfast with their dad everyday? Now that’s interesting.

Breakfast is a great time for dad and kids to spend time together, as many dads work full-time out of the house, so by the time they get home from work it can be bath and story time already (if your kids are young).

Plus, starting your day off right with breakfast is great for your body. Those who eat breakfast regularly tend to eat healthier. Plus, breakfast gives you energy to remain physically active during the day.

Does this happen at your house? If not, perhaps it’s a morning tradition worth starting. Kids and dads can alternate who gets breakfast ready – a great way to introduce young children to cooking and healthy eating.  Add in a daily activity such as reading the weather section together, answering questions from a trivia book or setting goals for the day. Even invite mom to join in the from time-to-time. Eating together as a family is so important.
