Common Threads knows the importance of protein. It helps our muscles grow and provides us with essential vitamins and minerals such as iron.

Start a child's day off with a protein-filled breakfast. Here are some examples:

• Hard boiled eggs
• Low-fat or non-fat yogurt with fruit
• Cottage cheese and fruit
• Peanut butter on toast
• Egg sandwich
• Add turkey and cheese to your eggs and make an omelet
