They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why? Because it provides you with the energy and nutrients that increase you concentration throughout the day, maintains a healthy body weight and stops you from getting hungry mid morning and snacking on foods which are bad for you. I've never been a big breakfast eater, I probably only have it once or twice a year when on holiday or when I'm trying to be healthy so probably fit into the one in ten who never eat it however I do want my kids to have a healthy lifestyle and not get into any bad habits.
One of the main reasons why I don't eat it, is because I don't have time in the mornings. I know I could get up earlier but I'd rather have an extra 15 minutes in bed. I could eat it in the morning whilst the kids eat theirs but I am rushing around getting Amelia's lunch ready and then I go and get dressed myself so there really isn't any time before we leave the house.
If you're like myself and don't eat breakfast or would like some ideas here are 30 easy breakfast ideas to get you going in the morning. When I do rarely eat breakfast some of my favourite breakfasts to have are smoked salmon on toast, scrambled egg on toast, bagels or pancakes. Amelia loves having her cereal everyday and sometimes toast or a banana.
I found this infographic below really interesting and it's made me realise that I should make more of an effort to eat breakfast. If I don't have time in the mornings I either need to get up earlier or I could make sure I have breakfast when I get back from dropping Amelia off at school.
