The Breakfast That Will Help Give Kids An Advantage This Back-to-school Season

El Monterey introduces its protein-packed breakfast burritos to give kids the very best start to their day

DINUBA, Calif., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- During the back-to-school season, busy mornings take their toll. In the chaos of finishing last-minute homework, packing lunches, and finding shoes and jackets, a hearty breakfast is all too often forgotten. Kids head out the door with sugary pastries, cereals and bars, or worse yet, nothing in their stomachs at all. But, there's a reason why breakfast should be taken seriously as the most important meal of the day, especially for children during the school year.

El Monterey Breakfast Burritos, made with real ingredients like scrambled eggs, pork sausage, cheddar cheese and fresh-baked flour tortillas, can be an excellent source of protein for kids this school year.

Studies have shown that kids who eat breakfast, specifically a breakfast rich in protein and low in sugar, experience a boost in their attention span, concentration and memory, which keeps learning at its highest and may contribute to higher grades.[1]  Starting each day with a filling breakfast can also lead to more physical energy, weight control, and a more positive attitude.

This school year, El Monterey is putting breakfast back on the menu with its tasty, energizing breakfast burritos. Made with real ingredients like scrambled eggs, pork sausage, cheddar cheese and fresh-baked flour tortillas, El Monterey Breakfast Burritos can be an excellent source of protein to provide kids (and parents!) with the fuel they need to take on the day. Not to mention that El Monterey Breakfast Burritos are heated in only 90 seconds, making this quick breakfast option an easy and efficient way to recharge kids' brains and bodies for the day ahead.
