Weekend breakfast time - Fun for the entire family
Yay! It’s the weekend! Unlike those rushed weekday breakfasts, you can actually relax and enjoy some family time. And if you make it fun, it will become something that everyone will look forward to. Use your imagination to make your breakfasts unique – or use some of our ideas below.
Family fun toolkit
Take a trip. Turn your breakfast table into a holiday destination by having a traditional morning meal from around the world. One weekend you could be in France tucking into croissants and coffee, the next you’re off to Canada for pancakes and maple syrup.
You name it! Put name tags on each place setting – but make them the names of famous people or historical characters and get the family to choose who they want to be. To make it even more fun, get them to act ‘in character’ all through breakfast.
Eat outside. Al fresco eating gets some air into the lungs and makes you all feel like it’s the holidays!
Wheat is the most widely grown cereal grain. It’s grown on over 17 per cent of the total cultivated land in the world, and is the staple food for 35 per cent of the world’s population. It provides more calories and protein in the world’s diet than any other crop.
Egyptians used to bury mummies with necklaces made from barley, and in 1324 King Edward II of England set the standard for the measurement - making the ‘inch’ equal to ‘three grains of barley, dry and round, placed end-to-end lengthwise’.
Leave it to the kids. If you’re feeling brave, let go of the controls and hand them over to the children. Let them decide what's on the breakfast menu – you just give them a hand with the cooking. They get the feel of independence, you get the chance to lavish praise! Just make sure they get the serving sizes right for a balanced breakfast.
Play a game. Puzzles are a great way of stimulating the mind first thing in the morning. Even a few rounds of I-Spy-With-My-Eye can lift the mood and wake everyone up.
Telling jokes. A guaranteed way of bringing laughter to the table is for everyone to gather at breakfast ready to tell their best (or worst) joke.
