Teenage breakfast

Breakfast is the most skipped meal of the day with up to 30% of school children missing breakfast every day. Teenagers are more likely to skip breakfast, especially girls. Here we share some tips on helping you think outside the box to make sure that breakfast becomes a part of your morning routine​.

Drinkable breakfasts

Smoothies are a good way to start the day if you do not have much appetite in the morning. Frozen fruit, yoghurt and milk work well.


Did you know that research has proven that students who regularly eat breakfast do better in their GCSE’s?

Grab and go 

Have you considered a sandwich for breakfast? Ham, cheese, peanut butter, tuna, chicken. Can be made the night before and eaten on the go. For more on the go ideas click here​.

Think different

Breakfast does not always have to be a ‘breakfast’ item: it can be anything considered healthy: for example, homemade soup or leftovers.

Eat right

Eating breakfast can help you maintain a healthy weight. This is because you are less likely to snack on junk food later.

Be prepared

Think about the things you like to eat. Pancakes can be made in advance,​ frozen and quickly toasted straight from the freezer.
