Family breakfasts….in my opinion quite easily the most stressful time of the day. You’ve got to get your littles up, dressed, fed and out the door within an obscenely short space of time.
Breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day but uh oh….research by MOMA Foods found that almost 20 million British women report spending just five and a half minutes preparing breakfast each morning, compared to just 15 million British men and only 60% of women said they make the time to eat breakfast at all.
That’s right, women everywhere are rushing breakfasts and missing breakfasts and you know what that spells? Yes that’s right…BIG FAT UH OH.
So what is the answer here? Well if you are chowing cereal or granola, toast or porridge then you’re not alone as no surprise – they are our most popular breakfast foods according to their research.
Snorrrrrre…..cereal and milk might be the simplest of breakfast concoctions, but can quickly become very boring and something that both you and your family will be groaning over in the long term. So folks, let’s get a little adventurous yeah? Check out these ideas for family breakfast in a hurry courtesy of MOMA:
Whizz up som fresh or frozen fruit with milk, juice or water – you could even add some honey for more sweetness or oats for a more filling breakfast. Failing that, stock up on MOMA’s premade oat smoothies.
2. Breakfast sundaes
So quick to make and extra brownie points for fun factor for the kids – simply invest in some sundae glasses and fill with bircher muesli, top with some yoghurt and fruit juice, layer again and top with more yoghurt and fresh fruit. It’ll look like dessert for breakfast and super speedy to make too!
3. Porridge sachets
Stock up on porridge sachets. MOMA have a few different porridge sachets, including cranberry and raisin, golden syrup and a plain sachet, too. With the plain, you could get creative with your own toppings and additions. How about adding some pumpkin puree with some cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to the porridge, now that autumn is here?
4. Frozen yoghurt cups
Mash up banana and mix with greek yoghurt and honey, then freeze in silicone molds. Eat on their own on the go or add to cereal or porridge in the mornings for a quick addition. Extra brownie points for the fact these can be made the night before and kept for a few days. Hurrah!
5. Jazz it up
Make toast more interesting by thinking outside of the box when it comes to toast toppers. Try spreading with some ricotta, honey and a sprinkling of sesame seeds for a mini breakfast feast. Yum!
