Wake up to a good breakfast
ZzZZZZZzzzz. Sorry, did we wake you? We all recognise that fuzzy just-woken-up feeling. It’s because during the night your metabolism slows right down. No worries, to get it going again, you just need to refuel!
Breakfast is a tasty way to kick start your day
It’s widely recommended your morning meal should provide around 20% of your daily energy. It should also contribute significantly to your daily nutrient intake, including carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre. And children need to get up to a quarter of their daily calcium from their breakfast too. So breakfast has a pretty big job to do!
Miss breakfast – miss out!
Breakfast can help set you up for the day ahead and if you skip it you’ll miss out on the goodness you need to get going.
You might think you can get what you’ve missed later – but studies show that if you don't get the right nutrients first thing, it’s quite hard to make up for them during the day.
