Breakfast Bites – Breakfast / Kids Lunch Box .img_3296

  This is the fourth time I prepared these Bites  as they are liked by everyone in my family . A little  change from regular  savory Breakfast .   Preparing Breakfast in the Morning from Scratch is a difficult task for me because of too Cold Weather and My daughter has to go before 7 A. M .

                             Why we need Breakfast  , because it breaks the overnight fasting and replenishes the supply of Glucose and keep up the energy Level. Kids who eat Balanced Breakfast before School will benefit both Physically and Mentally and have better concentration during School hours. Not eating Breakfast has been associated with excess Body Weight . I do a little reading before trying a recipe . The ingredients I used are Banana comes from Arabic word for ” finger ” banan is a good source of fiber , Potassium , Vitamin B6 and C . One Banana supplies 35 percent of your daily B6 requirement and our body uses B6 to grow new cells .They are fat and Cholesterol free. helps stomach feel better when it’s sick and keeps ypur digestive system running smoothly and also helps  muscles move well.  A banana averages 110 calories and satisfies sweet tooth. Aim to feed a variety of fruits. Fiber rich Whole grains like Oatmeal digest slowly and provides a steady stream of energy . Nuts a liitle good of fat in the morning. Dates helps avoids overeating of food and satisfy Sweet tooth . Good source of Potassium and helps nervous system. It is also said that taking one date per day will help you to maintain your Eye Health all your life.Source : Health Magazines .

Warm for 30 seconds in Microwave . Or you can prepare immediately without resting the dough . You can prepare 20 Small size Bites or 10 Medium Bites . Forgot to take a Picture of Small Bites.
