Getting back into the swing of serving breakfast each day takes some organization. Menu Planning and Shopping Lists are two key components to organizing your KES Club Shopping Volunteers for the year to come. Get the kids involved in Menu Planning for your club by asking them what healthy foods they enjoyed last year and what they would like to see this year. You can use a copy of the weekly menu planner attached to start your menu planning today!
Two questions we get asked a lot when menu planning is what breakfast cereals should I serve, and what granola bars should I serve at my KES Club? The most important thing to look for when shopping for both breakfast cereals and granola bars is High Fiber and Low Sugar. To take the guess work out of which cereals and granola bars are best for your KES Club we have attached a list of great options for both. These lists are a great resource provided to us by our National Partner Breakfast Club of Canada. Take a copy of these lists today on your first shopping trip to ensure you are choosing the right cereals and granola bars.
