A Great Breakfast can help get a GREAT SCORE!!!

A Week's Worth of Ideas for Morning Meals Leading Up to Test Day

Monday: Cheerios with a banana sliced up. Stick to low sugar cereals, like Cheerios or Crispix, and add some fruit to naturally sweeten it. Cereal is filling, easy to make, and tastes good — the perfect way to start the week.

Tuesday: Scrambled eggs with wheat toast. Eggs are a good source of protein, and with a slice of toast, you'll have a combination of nutrients that will give you extra oomph all morning.

Wednesday: Whole-wheat bagel with jelly or cream cheese. Multi-grain or whole-wheat bagels are more nutritious than plain white ones, and a tablespoon of jelly or cream cheese is a better choice than heavy butter. Plus, bagels are great for an on-the-go breakfast if you're in a rush to get to school for extra studying.

Thursday: Yogurt with granola. Get a big dose of calcium from the yogurt, and put granola on top for a satisfying crunch. Almost as satisfying as reviewing for the test and knowing all the answers!

Friday: Oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon. Oatmeal is truly a winner — it has a mix of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates, which will keep you energized and alert during the test. Sprinkle your oatmeal with a bit of brown sugar or cinnamon to make it sweeter; better yet, add some fresh berries! After all, it's Friday, and you deserve a treat for preparing yourself so well.
