Breakfast cereals with milk can provide you with up to 30 per cent of daily health requirements.

The nutrients in Weetabix are perfect for a healthy start daily.

You have heard it before, and you will probably hear it again the next time someone brings up their breakfast habits, but we are going to say it anyway - do not skip breakfast.  

Breakfast is the first meal of the day and 'breaks the fast'- the time between the last meal that you ate before you went to bed and the first thing you eat the next day. Everybody needs the boost of energy that breakfast provides so eat within two hours of getting up. Research has shown that people who skip breakfast do not perform well, either physically or mentally. Other research demonstrates that eating breakfast could also improve your mood and behaviour - good news for those of us who are not at our best in the morning!

Today, a healthy diet is all about balance; eating more of some foods and less of others and eating certain foods more often than others. And while this can be challenging, especially in the early morning when you are short on precious time, a solution presents itself with ready-to-eat cereals, which offer healthy choices and variety. As well as being tasty, they are quick and easy to prepare and eat. Eating wholegrain breakfast cereal daily that is high in fibre, low in sugars, salt, and fat, and fortified with certain vitamins and minerals is a big step towards a more productive day. In addition, breakfast cereals with milk can provide you with up to 30 per cent of the daily requirements of several key nutrients that are essential to our health and well-being.

Choosing a vitamin and mineral enriched cereal like Weetabix, which is made with wholegrain and high in fibre, then mixing in milk and your favourite fruit is a great way to start your day. Youngsters with a sweet tooth will be tempted to try the Weetabix Chocolate option that is also packed with nutritious goodness. So, don't be a skipper - instead, be picky and choose a healthy breakfast!
