Studies show that eating a healthy breakfast…
- Maintains a healthy body weight.
- Will limit them snacking on high-calorie, sugary snacks during the morning.
- Improves academic performance, longer attention span, better attendance and decreased hyperactivity in school
- Skipping breakfast will often make your child feel tired, restless or irritable by mid-morning. By eating breakfast, your child will have energy throughout the morning and help him/her concentrate better in class.
In my 7 part series I will be showing you how to create quick, nourishing breakfast meals for your little ones.
To kick off the series, I’ve chosen a classic Dippy egg with soldiers. This is a firm favourite of my children and one which recalls fond memories of my own childhood. It’s so simple, yet packed with high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals for long-lasting energy throughout their day.
My perfect dippy egg
Add 2 eggs and simmer for 2 mins if room temp (if it’s just come from the fridge then 3 mins)
Turn off heat.
Cover the pan and leave for 2 mins more.
Meanwhile, toast 4 slices wholemeal bread and spread thinly with butter.
To serve, cut into soldiers and dip into the egg.
Et voila, ready in 4 mins!
