Summertime is in full swing and families are underway with travel plans, vacations and getaways. With students out of school on summer break, parents are busy planning activities to keep children and teens entertained and to help create quality family moments. The summer season provides a great opportunity for outdoor experiences, i.e., swimming, hiking, nature walking, camping, riding bicycles, beach sports, etc. Summer plans, especially those outdoors, require all-day energy, stamina and strength to help fuel the fun activities. Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and is essential for improving concentration, productivity, healthier body weight, lowering cholesterol and providing energy.
