The Breakfast Club

The_breakfast_club-resized-600_jpg-580x400

Within the next 2 weeks, students will be returning to school.  Just as important as developing good student habits and getting enough sleep, students need to start their day with a healthy breakfast.  Their growing bodies and developing brains need regular refueling often.  When kids skip breakfast, they don’t get what they need to be at their best.  You should choose breakfast foods that are rich in whole grains, fibers and protein while low in sugar.

Here are some possible baby names taken from the John Hughes 80s movie The Breakfast Club.

Another pivotal August observance is Get Ready For College Month.  It is the time to prepare your 18 year old for higher education.  Making the transition from high school to college can be the biggest change in a young adult life.  It is exciting and scary at the same time.  College is a big step as the students no longer have a parent nearby to wake them up and keep them fed.  Your child will receive a crash course in time and money management techniques.  Here are the most popular names of the students entering college and university in the fall of 2015.
