A balanced breakfast does more than just get your child’s body going in the morning. It should make a great contribution to the energy and nutrients they need to kick start the day. In fact, it’s recommended to get around 20% of daily energy intake from breakfast.
But breakfast doesn’t just give your children energy – it provides them with protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and many other nutrients. If they don’t get the nutrition they need first thing it’s hard to make it up during the day. (1-4)
Fortunately, there’s a quick and easy way to help give them everything they need.
A bowl of cereal made with whole grain, a splash of milk or dollop of yogurt, and a piece of fresh fruit will give them a good start to the day.
Or, if you want to try something a bit different, take a look at our fun ideas.

The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
