Game: ‘what’s for breakfast?’
Eating a healthy breakfast kick-starts our metabolism, helps us concentrate better at school or at work because we’re not distracted by hunger, and generally gets our day off to a good start. Explore the plates below to get tasty ideas and tips for a healthy breakfast.

Toast with toppings
- For a tasty and healthy start to the day, it’s good to base breakfast on starchy foods such as bread or breakfast cereals.
- Try making toast with wholemeal or granary bread, and use just a small amount of low-fat spread (e.g. margarine) or jam. Choose a spread that is high in polyunsaturates or monounsaturates (both types of unsaturated fat), instead of one that’s high in saturated fat, such as butter.
- If there’s more time, why not have a poached egg and mushrooms on toast? Try grilling the mushrooms as it’s healthier than frying.
- For a change from ordinary toast, try some toasted fruit bread.
