Why breakfast is is your most important meal
If you’re a busy working woman then making time for your breakfast may not be at the top of your priority list; however it should be, according to an expert.
“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because you have obviously been asleep and whilst you have been asleep your body has been fasting,” claims Sian Porter, consultant nutritionist and dietician for Weetabix.
Ms Porter explained that while the body has been repairing itself and using energy overnight, breakfast is necessary in restoring key nutrients, vitamins and minerals and should provide about 20 to 25 per cent of your daily energy.
To help boost family health, she advised that “it is a really important habit for parents to try and instill in their children and make sure they are having breakfast”, as this can also help kids to concentrate at school.
A hot breakfast could be an especially rewarding idea for many families, as a study from Weetabix recently showed that most of us are switching from cereal to warm meals to get through cold early morning starts.
