Your body and brain need energy to start the day. Breakfast is not only the first meal; it’s also a family moment. Say ‘Good Morning’, share the dreams you just had and your plans for the day.

BY THE WAY
Lots of cereals look or claim to be healthy, but consist of 25%+ of sugar. Yes, even your organic muesli is often too sugary. Pick one as low as possible in sugar and salt, and that has more than 5 grams of fiber per 100 grams (3½oz). Or make your own muesli and sweeten it with fresh fruits, to feed your children some wholesome goodness.
