While most adults do very well with fresh vegetable juice, BarleyMax or a smoothie for breakfast, our children usually need more sustenance early in the morning. Breakfast gives them the immediate fuel they need after rest. It can however get boring if you don't get creative in the kitchen. Looking for a new breakfast option that prioritizes taste and nutrition? Try one of our favorite Hallelujah Diet recipes!
