Twenty-first century children growing up in the United States spend an enormous amount of time with digital media. According a Kaiser Foundation study conducted in 2010, children between the ages of eight and 18 spend an average of 7 hours 38 minutes a day with digital media. That is a lot of time to spend on anything that is not heart healthy. Playing outside helps promote a healthy lifestyle and combats child obesity.
The next time you're running late don't settle for an egg and cheese breakfast sandwich from a fast food place. Sometimes simple is better and healthier.
Grab yourself two slices of whole grain bread, toast them, top them with mashed avocado and sprinkle a little salt and pepper on for a beautiful rich base. Top that with two sunny side up eggs for a healthy dose of protein. You can stack them up for easy protein on-the-go or put them together for a delicious sandwich for the drive in to work.
