Anyhow, Kelloggs are promoting National Breakfast week this week which is a really good thing! Particularly as it is widely accepted that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but
amazingly one in five adults, and one in six children skip breakfast regularly.
I find breakfast a really challenging meal, Toddler boy is really picky and often not hungry, Fifi will devour anything and everything. I like to have a bowl of cornflakes, which I sometimes mix with Weetabix or porridge. I’m old and a bit set in my ways.
If having breakfast at home is a bit difficult for your family, see if you have a local
breakfast club by clicking here.Since 1998, Kellogg’s has worked with learning charity ContinYou to develop over 450 school breakfast clubs serving an extra 1,000,000 breakfast every year.
Have a look here for a video.
