“I often rush out the door in the morning and skip breakfast. Whyis eating a good breakfast so important?

Skipping breakfast can have a negative effect on your body. Your body tries to draw on its reserves of nutrients and water to function properly,
but these have depleted overnight. By not eating breakfast, you’re likely to feel tired and hungry later in the day, which can lead to snacking on sweet foods and sweet coffee to find energy to raise your blood sugar levels. The ups and downs of this cycle can affect your weight and wellbeing long-term.

Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day because it kick-starts our bodies for the day ahead. A good breakfast wakes up our metabolism so that we get the energy and brain power to function at our best. Plus by eating a healthy and sustaining breakfast, you are more likely to eat at regular times throughout the day and avoid unhealthy snacking which is beneficial to weight management and healthy nutrition.

“I often find that breakfast doesn’t provide enough energy to keep me going all morning and I start to snack early in the day. What should I be eating in the morning so that I my energy levels are sustained?

Eating breakfast is important, but so is eating the right breakfast. Breakfast foods such as white toast and many cereals available from
your supermarket are high in refined carbohydrates which give you a quick burst of energy and may taste good, but they don’t satisfy your
hunger for long.

They may also lack key nutrients such as fibre, protein, complex carbohydrates and vitamins and minerals.

A healthy, sustaining and balanced breakfast needs to provide:

  •  Complex carbohydrates to sustain your energy levels throughout the day.
  •  Protein to keep you fuller for longer and help to avoid unhealthy snacking.
  •  Low sugar content to help to regulate spikes in energy levels and therefore, control those feelings of low energy which often lead to
    unhealthy snacking.
  •  High fibre to maintain regularity and bowel health.
  •  Low fat dairy products instead of the full fat variety.
