It's the meal that starts your child off on it's daily adventures, so the most important thing is that provides a solid platform for their day.
Not a big sugar high that will lead to a mid morning slump (let's not mention those cereals), but something that will deliver a nice constant stream of energy, plenty of fuel for young brains and one of their five a day, just for an overall health boost!
The formula I use is:
Wholegrain carbohydrate + good fats/protein + fruit/vegetable = a boy bouncing out to school!
Some ideas along this formula are:
Porridge + 2 tbsp of Linwoods ground seeds (or 'sprinkles') + natural yogurt + berries
Flahavan's Hi 8 muesli + 2 tbsp chia seeds + chopped banana
McCambridges toasted brown bread + scrambled egg + green smoothie
Low sugar granola (e.g. Paddy O's) + natural yogurt + chopped nuts + berries
Wholemeal toast + mashed avocado with lemon + berry smoothie
Wholemeal toast + low sugar/low salt baked beans + green smoothie
Oatcakes + peanut butter + slices of apple + green smoothie
Grain free granola + natural yogurt + orange/apple fruit salad
Oatcakes + with cream cheese + boiled egg + cherry tomatoes
Weetabix + flaked almonds + sliced banana
