Combine a talented dietitian with a celebrity cook and what do you get? Easy, tasty healthy food ideas and recipes from a team called Sprout. Sprout partnered with the Australian Breakfast Cereal Manufacturers’ Forum to produce a great breakfast guide, free for you.
Even if you or the children are not big 'bowl of cereal' fans, this guide is worth reading for the lowdown on breakfast facts. It also includes ideas that don't involve bowls of breakfast cereal including smoothies to go, toad in the hole (I call these one-eyes) and even dessert for breakfast.
As a bonus, it is in black and white for young ones to colour in and personalise on rainy days, during the holidays and when travelling.
No matter what time you start eating after you wake up, make your first foods worthwhile for both your body’s sake and the pleasure of your tastebuds. Print off 'My Brekkie Book' to see what the children’s reactions are. Share it with others.
With late nights, sleep overs and sleep ins, healthy routines are easily lost over holidays but nutrition is as important as ever. For youngsters, routine in both meal and sleep times helps keep them in an even mood and well nourished. For grown-ups, the first food of the day has got to be good enough to meet the demands of the hours ahead.
