Breakfast ideas for little ones

One of the toughest jobs I have as a mom is trying to get my preschooler and toddler to eat healthy foods that are low in sugar and high in nutrients. And trying to get veggies in a preschooler?? Forget it! Breakfast is by far the hardest meal of all for us. It seems like everything my four year old wants to eat is loaded with refined sugar. Recently I was in our local Harris Teeter and discovered a sweet potato pancake mix that both my girls love. Bruce's Sweet Potato pancake mix make naturally sweet pancakes that are both low in saturated fat and cholesterol and have been approved by the American Heart Association. I add a little sugar free syrup (I prefer Cary's Sugar Free syrup) and my girls eat these up. The best part is that they're quick and easy to make (just add water). What better way to get a veggie in!
