Several studies suggest that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. And a Harvard Medical School study found that people who eat whole-grain cereals every morning are among those most likely to see the health benefits. Another more worrying study found that an estimated 40% of children go to school without breakfast. The same study reviled:
With very little time in the morning, cereal can be a good breakfast option; tasty, nutritious and quick.
Little A is enjoying her breakfast in the porcelain Mega series by designer Karen Kjældgård-Larsen for Royal Copenhagen. The porcelain set consisting of a mug with two handles for the milk or juice and a deep plate perfect for cereal or porridge.
My girls also loves reading on the cereal cartoons, and Havre Fras is not only packed with wholegrain goodness (and low on sugar), the packaging is also illustrated inside and outside, with quizes and competitions, ensuring your child keeps entertained until the plate is empty and the little tummy is full.
In these digital times, with a smartphone or an Ipad, the cartoon can also come alive, through a children’s app, Fras Spas.
I’m no researcher, nor a medical trained person. I’m just a mum, that knows by experience that my children are not only happier but they are also doing better at school after a good nights sleep and having had breakfast before going to school. So for the improved results? I guess we’ll have to wait and see about that until the report cards comes home… 😉
Now, please share your breakfast routine! Is it a full english breakfast, toast, cereal, porridge or sandwich? Do you find the time?
