Rice is nice … and the Japanese love it with a soybean puree known as natto.
Gruel, a thin porridge made with cereal and water or milk, is one of the most ancient breakfasts and is still eaten all over the world. The Chinese version is called Congee, a rice gruel topped with pickled tofu, strings of dried meat or egg.
Yum Yum! The Turks know a thing or two about satisfying the morning tummy rumbles. They love their ‘Kaymak’; honey and thick cream on toasted bread and fried eggs with a delicious spicy sausage called 'Sucuk'.
The Italians do breakfast on the go – hot, fast and sugary - “cappuccino e cornetto” is basically just a cup of coffee and a sweet croissant.
Not for the faint-hearted, ‘Fracturas’ is a sugar-rush of a breakfast consisting of buttery, flaky pastries topped with sweetened milk, which has been boiled and reduced to a thick, sticky sauce called Dulce de Leche.
Peruvians love raw fish in the mornings - they tuck into ‘Ceviche’ - raw fish cured in citrus juices, with chillies.
The Bolivian breakfast might sound more like a dinnertime dish - Salteña is a morning meal of stewed meat and vegetables in a thick pastry case with a hot sauce.
Cock-a-doodle-do! There’s nothing like a bit of ‘spotted rooster’ to wake you up in the morning. Made up of black beans, rice, salsa and avocado, this delicious mixture is eaten with a corn tortilla and fried plantain.

For the last 15 years we’ve been working to reduce the sodium (which is the major component of salt) in our breakfast cereals across the world because we want to keep making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency in all products, in all countries, takes time - so some may have more sodium than others. Our aim is for all our cereals – globally – to have the same reduced levels of sodium, with a target of less than 135mg per serving in all our children's products.
As well as being a healthy choice for people who want to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, or have coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, Gluten Free Corn Flakes are fortified with B-vitamins, folic acid and iron
Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too. It’s easy to know if a Nestlé breakfast cereal is made with whole grain: just look out for the Green Banner and whole grain tick on top of the box.
It’s too early to say. The science in this area is still emerging. There is evidence that low GI foods take longer to digest and help you feel satisfied for longer, but none that you’ll eat fewer calories at the next meal.
