Is breakfast often missed in the rush out the door to work or school?
Research tells us that breakfast eaters tend to make healthier choices throughout the day making it easier to achieve or maintain a healthy body weight. Our brain also needs energy from nutritious food to function at its best throughout the day and avoid that ‘fuzzy’ feeling.
Ensuring you and your family eat breakfast regularly also provides an opportunity to consume foods rich in dietary fibre, B vitamins, folate and iron and meet our needs of these essential nutrients.
For the best start to the day, choose a healthy breakfast which is high in fibre, low Glycaemic Index and includes protein. Why not get the kids involved in planning healthy breakfasts they will enjoy. Need some inspiration? Check out this free recipe book from Sprout.
