National Breakfast Week

My breakfasts tend to consist of a latte to go, albeit home made these days in my 'Not a Paper Cup' travel mug. Thank goodness for Cravendale!! I can bulk buy up to 2 weeks in advance thanks to their longer dates, so I never run out of milk any more - Long live my lattes!

It's the weekends I love. I actually have the chance to sit down with some hot buttered crumpets and a large mug of coffee, still in my pj's on the couch with the kids. Ahh bliss!

Carson goes to breakfast club at his school during the week. The value for a mere 50p is incredible, he gets cereal, toast, fruit and a drink. I love this service. Not only does it help me get to work on time, it provides Carson with the most important meal of the day and isn't predominantly sugar based - which I must admit, I can become a sucker for. Cereal bars and stuff, urgh, I hold my head in shame.



It's not just me though, as Warburtons recent research discovered. 20% of parents admit that their child's first meal of the day consists of pastries, chocolate or even crisps. Furthermore, a staggering 43% of parents load their children with sugary cereals instead.

Warburtons have teamed up with British Heart Foundation in order to raise awareness of the importance of healthy eating and share essential, and sensible, information on health and nutrition. Over the next two years the aim is to highlight the importance of overall family heart health – including starting the day with the right nutrition - as new donation packs of Warburtons wholemeal hit shelves nationwide.


There are multiple benefits linked to the consumption of wholegrains - such as gastrointestinal health and supplying dietary nutrients as well as being associated with protection against, and reduction in risk of, various diseases including coronary heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers as recognised by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN).

From 19th January until 20th February, for every loaf of Warburtons wholemeal sold, 5p, will be donated to the British Heart Foundation (BHF) as part of their pledge to raise £1million and help keep British families hearts healthy.

There's never been a better time to try wholemeal really has there?

  1. I'm always shocked when I see school kids walking to school eating crisps, chocolate bars and sausage rolls for their breakfast. Mine aren't allowed out till they're sat down and had a proper breakfast.

  2. I must say, I was one of those kids who used to skip breakfast and eat a packet of crisps or a pasty. But now since being pregnant I make sure I have breakfast
