Breakfast can be tricky. Sometimes you just don’t know what to have and in these situations it is easy to make an unhealthy choice.
The body has been without fuel for perhaps 12 hours and I still believe breakfast to be one of the most important meals of the day. Children especially often go to school on empty calories in the form of a cereal. Many children love this breakfast and it can be adapted to suit their tastes. They particularly like it with bananas and strawberries. You can also add some Greek yoghurt.
This breakfast is a powerhouse of enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
Easy to make, you will feel virtuous for the rest of the day.
