    Morning routine

    Weekend breakfast time - Fun for all the family

    Hooray it’s the weekend! Unlike those crazy weekday breakfasts, you can relax
    and enjoy being with your family. And if you make it fun too, it will become
    something 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!

    Leave it to the kids. If you’re feeling brave, let go of the controls and hand over to the children. Let them decide what's on the breakfast menu – you just give them a hand with the cooking. They get a bit of independence, you get the chance to heap praise – and do the clearing up. 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 can lift the mood and wake everyone up.

    Telling jokes. A guaranteed way of bringing laughter to the table is for everyone to come to breakfast ready to tell their best (or worst) joke.

    Do Nestlé products in emerging countries have more salt than products in developed/developing countries?

    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 on making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency on 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.

    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

    How can I find foods made with whole grain?

    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.

    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.

    Why does Nestlé label vegetable oil?

    Because it’s industry practice to label seasonal oils (oils that aren’t consistently available across the year). In Europe it’s now mandatory to detail the types of vegetable oils used in a food product. So it’s no longer permitted to use the term “vegetable oil” on a label.
