When my children were very young, I started a family tradition that has endured to this day: on the morning of your birthday, you can have ANYTHING you want for breakfast.
That's right, no limits. A hamburger with all the trimmings? Sure thing. Macaroni and Cheese? Absolutely.
Ice cream? Of course!
And yes, ice cream has long been the preferred choice of all 3 of my daughters over the years. Sometimes it's on a chocolate chip waffle, or served on a pancake, or just part of a great big sundae with whipped cream and tons of toppings.
Now, there's actually a study that says eating ice cream for breakfast can improve your overall alertness and mental performance. You can read more at the International Business Times.
I guess I was ahead of the curve on that one!
