El Monterey conducted a survey of moms and discovered that weekday morning stress more than doubled after having kids. When asked which stressful morning task they’d most like to give up, nearly half of respondents said they would forgo making breakfast. Which is understandable since picky eaters can make breakfast time an early morning everyday battle. In fact, 50 percent of moms said the main thing they look for when selecting breakfast food is whether it’s something their kids will actually eat. And 70 percent said that when it comes to breakfast, as long as their kids are full, they’re happy.
Eating breakfast is essential, but what kids eat for breakfast is equally important. Studies show that kids who eat a breakfast rich in protein and low in sugar have increased attention spans, concentration and memory – ultimately leading to higher grades. In addition to performance in school, hearty breakfasts also lead to a boost in energy, a more positive attitude and weight control.
Each El Monterey Signature Breakfast Burrito is an excellent source of protein, made with real ingredients like scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, sausage and fresh-baked flour tortillas. And, the burritos can be ready in just three and a half minutes in the microwave, making them an easy breakfast for kids to make on their own—so busy moms can focus on what matters most…like getting to school on time.
