    Grilled Banana and Maple Toast

    This is like a grilled cheese sandwich, but for breakfast. Made with whole grain bread instead of white bread and filled with fruit instead of sugary jam, it is a low glycemic index food, meaning it will help keep your child full until lunchtime.

    Stovetop or toaster oven version

    If you don’t have a grilled sandwich maker, oil a skillet, heat it over medium-high heat, and grill the sandwich, letting it cook for about 2 minutes on each side. You can also grill the sandwich by brushing it with oil and using a toaster oven with a grill setting to grill it for a few minutes on each side.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
