Athletes need quick, healthy breakfast options on the move. In the morning (wake – lunch) eat at least 1/3 of the day’s energy (calories). Combine healthy energy packed grains with lean proteins and colorful fruits. You may also need a morning snack.
Pick a breakfast food from each column, add a glass of milk or calcium fortified orange juice for extra energy and nutrition.
