Healthy breakfast ideas

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It helps kick-start our metabolism and gives us the energy we need to face the day.

But a shocking statistic shows that 50% of mums skip brekkie! Many mums don’t have the energy or time to enjoy breakfast so choose to skip it.

As busy mums, our own needs tend to fall to the bottom of the priority list – especially when rushing the kids out the door. However, skipping breakfast can be associated with a higher BMI as well as lower energy levels throughout the day.

If you are looking for some healthy breakfast ideas, then we have some great ideas for you from our Healthy Mummy App. There are even some that are perfect for eating on the go for those really busy mornings!
