October 3, 2021

We’re heading back into the routine season and I think that so many of us – not just kids but parents – start to feel this sense of “I need to get myself organized” and of course, getting everybody out the door in the morning can set up its own set of challenges.

At the start of the school year, I got to share some tips on how to reduce anxiety using nutritious breakfast breakfast foods on Global News Morning Kingston.



Some key takeaways

We want to have foods that stabilize blood sugar and gives them energy first thing in the morning while keeping them full. Some examples of foods for breakfast is anything with fibre, healthy fats and protein –

  1. 01. Sprouted grain bread with almond butter or peanut butter, plus some fruits like blueberries.
  2. 02. Overnight soaked oats with easy toppings.
  3. 03. Chia pudding with almond milk and maple syrup or honey.


Some other suggestions that can help with stress and anxiety, especially during this season are –

  1. 01. Magnesium supplementation usually given at night (chewables for the younger kids), plus an Epsom salt bath.
  2. 02. Omega 3 fatty acids.
  3. 03. Having a full glass of water first thing in the morning.
