Morning routine

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!

know?

Wheat almighty!

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.

Oh mummy!

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.

What about breakfast during the week?

    We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:

    What are the health and nutritional benefits of Nestlé Gluten Free Corn Flakes?
    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
    I’ve heard a low GI diet can help me lose weight. Is this true?

    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.

    Is Nestlé planning to launch gluten-free versions of its other cereals or cereal bars?
    Not yet, but we will keep listening and responding to people’s needs.
    Why do some breakfast cereals have different serving sizes labeled on pack?

    The serving sizes mentioned on breakfast cereals can slightly differ, mainly due to differences in product density. Beyond its nutrients density, it’s also important for the portion size to suit the average cereal bowl. Some types of breakfast cereals, such as mueslis or granolas, are denser than traditional flakes; so a 30 g serving could look tiny and unrealistic in a bowl – that's why we use 45 g as a reference. These different serving sizes have been defined by the European cereals trade association and consistently applied by all industry members in Europe.

    Does the high GI of breakfast cereals negate the whole grain benefits?

    No. Even though some foods made with whole grain have a high GI, you can still benefit by including them in a healthy, balanced diet. Eating lots of whole grain can be good for the heart, even if the GI of the food is high. The whole population can benefit from eating more whole grain; the effect of low GI foods is still not clear.
