Healthy Breakfast

It's important to eat breakfast

How do I start eating breakfast if I am not used to or I am not feeling hungry?

  • Wake up 15 minutes earlier
  • Have something small for example a fruit and yogurt or a Bran muffin or small portion of oats or cereal
  • Plan your breakfast the night before and already set the table for the next morning’s breakfast
  • Some of your preparations could be done the previous evening e.g. soaking your oats overnight
  • Schedule a specific time which would suit the whole family and try to eat breakfast together

Here are some ideas to “spice up” your oats
