Our mouthwatering Brain-Boosting Breakfast series continues with celebrity chefs and restaurateurs creating healthy, brain-boosting breakfast ideas to help keep kids going throughout the day.
Quinoa has moved from quirky health food to pantry staple over the past few years. The gluten-free complex carb is packed with iron, fiber, calcium, and magnesium, but it's quinoa's rice-like texture that makes it a tot-friendly grain. Leave it to Jessica Seinfeld to find a way to work nutritionists' favorite grain into a breakfast recipe. The children's cookbook author (who's currently working on her third cookbook) and mother of three has perfected the art of transforming everyday favorites into kiddie health foods with the addition of vegetable purees and superfood ingredients.
For our Brain-Boosting Breakfast series, Jessica shares a cinnamon-maple quinoa recipe, saying, " I pre-make quinoa and store in the fridge to have on hand to use for breakfasts, lunches, and dinner. This quinoa breakfast is a protein-packed option for the whole family and makes for a nice change from oatmeal or cold cereal."
