Even though studies show kids who eat breakfast perform better in school, finding the time for breakfast still remains a challenge for most parents.

Picky eaters and tight schedules make the problem worse, resulting in poor nutrition and lower academic achievement in school.

The Arizona Milk Producers are teaming up with the Arizona Cardinals’ NFL Fuel Up to Play 60 program to ensure every kid has the chance to stay healthy and active.

Spokesman Calais Campbell, Cardinals defensive lineman, notes the objective is to help children eat the right kinds of foods and to get 60 minutes of physical activity every day.

Creating a breakfast game plan doesn’t need to be difficult.

Here’s one recipe to get you started.
