Spinach cheese toast — an interesting way to combine taste and nutrition

It is a well-known fact that the most important meal of the day is breakfast. A healthy breakfast is particularly important for growing children. But getting kids to eat breakfast is an ordeal for most parents. Couple that with the morning rush of reaching school and office on time, breakfasts are left unfinished and kids lose out on vital nutrients to kick start their day. Further, bread-based food makes a great snack idea for kids. Especially, when they come home after school, famished.

So, leave aside the usual bread and butter sandwich and the bread and eggs toast, and try these healthy and yummy bread recipes for kids. These are surprisingly different and delicious too!
