September is National Better Breakfast Month, and what better way to celebrate than with a family breakfast outing? Better Breakfast Month encourages individuals and families to make healthier choices when it comes to the first meal of the day. Studies show that children who regularly eat breakfast earn higher grades in school and are less likely to be depressed, anxious or irritable. When choosing a healthy breakfast, consider items that are high in fiber, protein and healthy fats. We’ve chosen some of the healthiest breakfast items from some local eateries to help you in your quest for a better breakfast.

My Dog Duke’s Diner is a great family breakfast spot. For a fun game, see how many dogs you can spot inside! Their menu is made up of breakfast favorites with a twist, like their breakfast skillets. Get an array of your favorite breakfast foods presented to you cooked to perfection.

Urbavore’s menu is entirely plant based and vegan, but even the pickiest eaters won’t notice. Try the Breakfast de Champignons, which is made up of vegan egg scramble, crispy potatoes and kale, and biscuits with mushroom gravy. (If you want a not-as-healthy option, try the vegan donuts!)
