Rise and shine breakfasts for winter mornings

Healthy breakfast recipes to get your sleeping beauties out of bed and ready for school and work.


Berry porridge
Children love porridge if it’s sweet and fruity. This breakfast recipe is great because it means you won’t add heaps of sugar to a breakfast that is wonderful for energy, lower cholesterol and vitamins.

  • To a cupful of porridge oats add 200-300ml of skimmed milk (semi-skimmed for under-5s, skimmed for toddlers aged 12-24 months) or water in a pan.
  • Simmer or a medium heat on the hob, stirring regularly until the porridge is smooth. Add a little more milk or water if needed.
  • After four minutes add in raspberries or blackberries. If you don’t mind the sugar, add a spoonful of honey or maple syrup.
  • After half a minute more, take off the heat and serve.

Californian bagel breakfast
Wholegrain bagels are excellent for vitamins, fibre, minerals and a good lower-fat base for treat toppings.

  • Cut a bagel in half and toast.
  • Lightly spread with a lower-fat soft cheese.
  • Squash half an avocado with a fork and spread this across the two halves of bagel. Avocados are great for antioxidants and skin health, but if you’re worried about their fat content, try grilled mushroom instead.

Scrambled eggs
Eggs are a wonderful source of protein and can help fuel your body for longer, so they are a great healthy breakfast to give you a kick-start in the morning. Boost the offering with ham or chopped yellow pepper (for vitamin C).

  • Break two eggs and whisk with a fork along with a splash of skimmed milk.
  • In a little oil, lightly sauté chopped yellow pepper, then add the egg and chopped ham (optional), stirring until well scrambled. This only takes a minute or so.
  • When it’s cooked, serve with grilled tomato or wholegrain toast.

Supersavvy Tip

Porridge is great as a base - I add all sorts of things to it! Stewed fruit (hot or cold), raisins, grated apples, linseed (good for ladies of a certain age!), blueberries when I children staying (they love to stir them in until it goes purple!) A real super food xx
