(Family Features) Today, 85 percent of Americans fall short of the USDA's recommended three daily servings of fat free or lowfat milk.1 Incorporating milk into your morning meal is an easy way to help close the gap between actual and recommended milk intake. The USDA's MyPlate is a visual tool to help build a nutritious breakfast, and a reminder that lowfat or fat free milk should be incorporated into your daily meals, including breakfast.

(BPT) - The holidays are right around the corner and so are the rich, indulgent foods that adorn many dessert tables. Sweets of the season tend to be rich in flavor but also calories and fat.

(BPT) - When you’re brain-storming holiday menus, do lovingly roasted turkeys with all the trimmings and decadent cookies dance alongside the peppermint and sugarplums in your visions? Certain flavors and foods are strongly associated with the holiday season – seafood, however, isn’t always among those favored dishes. But it could be! The right seasonings and a dash of creativity – along with historically low prices on well-loved options like lobster – could make seafood a centerpiece of your holiday menus.

(BPT) - Once temperatures start to drop, keeping kids active can be a difficult task as weekends migrate away from park visits and Little League games to more time spent indoors. Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do in your own home to keep children engaged and help limit their video game and TV time. One of those things is cooking together, which reinforces math, science and reading comprehension skills while building great memories.

My kids are deprived. Or so they would have you think. My oldest daughter, Torri (18), came home the other day with a story about how the morning after spending the night with a friend, the friend apologized profusely that all they had in the cupboards for breakfast was cold cereal. To hear Torri tell it, her reaction was nothing short of crazed. She loves cereal, you see. Loves it with a vengeance even. And ever since we started making our own granola and stopped buying the sugary store versions a little over three years ago, cold breakfast cereals are something we resign ourselves to only when we’re staying in a hotel and a quick and convenient breakfast is key.

With the weather hinting at cooler temperatures on the horizon, this mom’s focus turns to fall foods. As someone who cooks with the seasons, I look forward to the time of year when pumpkin and warm spices like nutmeg and cloves begin appearing in my recipes. I have a whole Pinterest board (find me at pinterest.com/suchdarcie/) devoted to cozy fall dinners and another that features apple desserts. But one meal that often gets overlooked in seasonal cooking is breakfast. Those of us with school-age children in the house tend to be in such a morning rush that we can consider ourselves lucky to get even a bowl of cereal on the table. Believe it or not, though, there are plenty of recipes out there for moms like us who want to serve a hearty and wholesome hot breakfast in a hurry. I thought I’d share two of my favorites today.
