Good, Better, Breakfast!

Build a strong foundation for your child through nutrition. Skipping breakfast sets your child up for poor brain function, a bad mood, and an increased risk of behavioural problems throughout the day.

It’s all about balance

A highly refined carbohydrate breakfast (e.g. sugary refined cereal only) increases blood sugar levels quickly for a short period, after which it drops again. These highs and lows can make your child feel groggy later in the day. They’ll also have less energy for concentrating, which may affect their ability to learn.

Ideally, breakfast, besides something like a piece of fruit, should include protein, carbohydrate and fat.

Nestlé NANKID OPTIPRO as part of a balanced breakfast, is one of the easiest ways of ensuring that your child is getting a source of protein. It also has added active cultures; B. longum and L. rhamnosus which are known to help build a balanced immune and digestive system, as well as omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. This is a good way to start off their day.

Building good eating habits

It’s easy to turn to ready-made meals and snacks when it comes to your child’s nutrition – especially when you’ve had a long day at work and it seems easier to just pop something into the microwave. But when it comes to your child’s eating habits, it’s up to you to instil good food habits as good nutrition from a young age helps to set them up for a healthy adulthood.
