Breakfast and Lunchboxes


What Is A Good Breakfast?
Starting the day with fruit and cereal will provide you with sustainable energy. You should avoid fatty foods such as bacon and sausages that may make you feel sluggish and tired. Great examples of a balanced breakfast include:

  • A bowl of porridge topped with fresh or dried fruit and a glass of orange juice.
  • Poached egg on wholemeal toast.
  • Wholegrain cereal such as museli with no added sugar and semi-skimmed milk. Add chopped fruit for extra flavour.
  • A banana and two slices of wholemeal toast with Marmite.
Low-fat lunchboxes
Thinking of healthy ideas day after day for childrens' packed lunches can be difficult. Be sure to include lots of starchy foods and fruit and vegetables instead of crisps and chocolate bars. Try some of the following:

  • Make sandwiches using thick cut granary or wholemeal bread and use fillings such as egg, tuna and chicken, mixed with fresh salad leaves. Or prehaps try mashed banana!
  • Use last night's leftovers to make up pasta or rice salads. Try mixing with pepper, cucumber chunks, cold chicken, tuna or kidney beans.
  • Fill a thermos flask with soup during the winter.
  • Replace cakes with yoghurt or fromage frais.
  • Try to include at least one piece of fruit - make it easy to eat, e.g. chop an apple into four.
