What Makes a Nutritious Breakfast
Breakfast is the first opportunity in the day to get onto the nutritional front foot.
It’s a Simple Equation
Making your breakfast count towards meeting your daily nutrition needs is easy. Just follow this simple formula to build a nutritious and delicious breakfast. Some people enjoy having the same breakfast everyday and others love to mix it up. Whatever your preference, if you include three food groups you are right on track. You can mix and match them as you like.
Go with the Grain
Start building your breakfast with a serving of nutritious grains such as high fibre or whole grain cereals. A cup of cereal such as Two Scoops Raisin Bran* or All-Bran Multi-Grain Crunch* cereal should do the trick. Or, you can be really adventurous and mix two or three of your favourite cereals to create a new taste sensation.
If you want for something warm and comforting in the morning, look no further than Eggo* waffles. They’re quick and convenient to pop into the toaster and are the perfect foundation for tasty toppings.
If it’s milk you love, then go for it. On a cold winter’s morning, try heating your milk and pouring it on Mini-Wheats* cereal. Alternately, a fortified plant-based beverage is a great addition to any breakfast bowl!
Yogurt is delicious too. There’s nothing like smooth, creamy yogurt with crunchy and crispy cereal flakes or as a topping for waffles.
Get your Fruit On
Breakfast is the perfect meal to add the fresh goodness of fruit. Bananas, strawberries and blueberries all make wonderful partners with cereal. Crispy grain notes with tangy fruit sweetness – yum! You can also get creative…a handful of fresh berries, sliced kiwi or melon are perfect for decorating waffles.
But Wait There’s More
Adding a few nuts and seeds can add extra crunch and make breakfast even more tasty. You can spread peanut butter or almond butter on a serving of waffles. It’s a great way to experiment with different ingredients and create your own idea of breakfast heaven.
