Bexley's Nutrition Tip of the Month - Don't Skip Breakfast!

Breakfast can help give us the energy we need to face the day, as well as some of the vitamins and minerals we need for good health.

Some people skip breakfast because they think it will help them lose weight. But missing meals doesn’t help us lose weight and it isn’t good for us because we miss out on several nutrients.

Breakfast kick starts your metabolism so that it is able to break food down quicker throughout the rest of the day.

There is some evidence to suggest that eating breakfast can actually help people control their weight!

So, think about it before you leave for work and why not go for a bowl of wholegrain cereal with some low fat milk and sliced banana and a glass of fruit juice for a healthy start to the day?
