Break that fast with breakfast - it's an important meal of the day! Did you know that when you are pregnant it is best not to leave more than 12 hours between the last snack of the day and the first meal of the following day? If you are pregnancy or not, breakfast is a great opportunity to pack in key nutrients.
Choose a balanced breakfast to include:
A cereal food like wholemeal/granary toast or a bowl of wholegrain cereal
A portion of fruit
A portion of dairy
If you choose to have toast you could add beans for a source of Iron. Don't forget to have a drink, ideally water, milk or 150mls fruit juice. Save the tea and coffee (which are also a good source of fluids) to a little later.
With a good breakfast in your tummy you are less likely to snack on high fat/sugar snacks during the morning, as well as feeling better!
