Foodfacts.com members and Blog readers probably know that it’s easy to overlook this important meal when the pressure is on to get the turkey in the oven. But breakfast can help give us all a good start to the day, so when you and your family delve into your presents, remember to get into a good breakfast too.
Try making your usual breakfast cereal special by serving it with pieces of fresh apple and pear. You could throw in a few nuts, or dried festive fruits such as figs, cranberries and dates.
Or why not add a handful of brightly colored berries to your cereal, such as raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or strawberries? You can usually buy berries frozen, even when they’re out of season. Frozen fruit, as well as fresh, tinned and dried, all count towards the 5-a-day fruit targets.
If you’re a muesli person, why not jazz up your daily serving with several slices of fresh tangerine and banana, a few grapes and some yogurt?
You could cook up some scrambled eggs on wholemeal toast. And, for a bit of luxury, serve them with a ‘mulled juice’ from a cocktail of cranberry, orange and fruits of the forest juices – just warm up the juices and serve with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg.
If children (or adults) need a snack to help keep them going until a late lunch, why not serve a plate of fruity breads, such as pannetone, currant buns or malt loaf? You could wash it down with home-made smoothies made from milk, yogurt or juice and their favorite fruits thrown in. Try bananas, apples or clementines.
