Eating breakfast wakes up your digestive system, fuels you up, and gets you ready for the day. It is important for adults but perhaps even more for kids. Children do better in school and have more energy if they start the day with breakfast.

Salad in jars is a perfect solution for the problem when all the salad’s goodies fall to the bottom of the bowl. Simply take individual pint-sized canning jars and layer the individual salads. Put the dressing and seasoning first, then add the sturdier components and finish with the greens go on top. You can make up a few jarred salads at the beginning of the week and have them in your fridge all week.
