|A Nutritious Breakfast is Essential
Babies grow and learn fast, so a good breakfast is important. Giving your baby a solid nutritional start to the day is associated with better attention span, concentration, word recall and memory – all essential to good learning.
The Right Balance of Nutrients
A good breakfast should have a healthy balance of carbohydrates from whole grains, proteins, vitamins and minerals. It should provide for a slow and steady release of energy to help keep your baby satisfied, alert and happy.
Energy to Explore
Babies need plenty of energy to explore and learn. Simple carbohydrates, like sugar and refined flours, give your baby a rush of energy that quickly disappears. But complex carbohydrates, like oats and oat bran, are a good source of soluble fiber and provide a steady supply of energy over time. Beech-Nut® Good Morning™ products have 1 gram of soluble fiber per serving, for nutrition that lasts all morning long.
