10 Healthy Breakfasts
Getting to eat breakfast isn't always easy, but getting the whole family into the habit will stand you in good stead to deal with the rigours of work, play and stress. The following are some of the many ways you can make breakfast fun and healthy:

1. Eggy in the Middle

Take a piece of bread and cut a circle into the centre of the bread using a cookie cutter or small cup. Place the bread into a flat bottomed pan and carefully crack an egg into the hole. Cook for about 2 minutes and turn if the egg has spilled onto the top surface. Toast the left over bread circle and serve with your favourite toast topping

2. Muffin Burger

Grill 2 rashers of lean bacon in the oven and poach an egg. Toast both halves of an English muffin and spread with tomato sauce. Place the bacon and egg onto one half of the muffin and top with the other half. Wrap in paper towel for easier eating

3. Fruit Smoothies

Blend together 1 banana, apple, a nectarine, a few berries, 125ml fresh fruit juice and 175ml low fat or fat free yoghurt. Sprinkle with a few nuts and serve chilled. This breakfast in a glass will take you all of 5 minutes to prepare and is brimming with goodness

4. Fresh Fruit Salad

Cut a variety of pineapple, mango, banana, berries, apple and pear into bite sized pieces and toss with fresh mint and coconut. Top with low fat or fat free yoghurt and drizzle with honey. Enjoy!

5. Stewed Fruit

To save time during the week, prepare this on the weekend and keep refrigerated until required. Cut 3 apples and a pear, then add 6 dried peaches, 6 dried apricots and a handful of raisins. Cook over low heat in 125ml apple or grape juice until tender. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and ginger for flavour and serve with low fat or fat free yoghurt

6. Frozen Fruit Drops

Cut a variety of pineapple, mango, banana, berries, apple and pear into bite sized pieces and freeze overnight. Serve these sprinkled over muesli, hot porridge or yoghurt. The texture and temperature of the fruit will send your taste buds souring straight into space!

7. Juice It

Whether it's orange, pineapple, peach or pear - juice it! Mix and match your own combinations of your favourite fruit into a glassful of goodness that will kick start your day

8. Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs

Cut a piece of smoked salmon into strips. Scramble 2 eggs with a bit of low fat or fat free milk, salt and pepper and a Tablespoon of fresh chives. Add the salmon strips and serve with hot buttered toast

9. Omelettes

Separate 2 eggs and stiffly beat the egg whites until fluffy. Add the yolks, salt and pepper and teaspoon wholegrain mustard. Pour egg mixture into a hot greased pan, loosening the edges as it cooks. Once cooked through add filling and fold in half. Choose a variety of the following healthy fillings, either fresh or cooked: cherry tomatoes, spring onions, mushrooms, cottage cheese, peppers, smoked ham, smoked salmon or fresh herbs

10. Pancakes

Whisk together 1 egg and 1 cups low fat or fat free milk and add to 1 cup self-raising flour to form a smooth, thin batter. Allow to stand for 20 minutes, then pour into a greased frying pan. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the batter, then flip. Fill with a variety of the following healthy fillings, either fresh or cooked: cherry tomatoes, spring onions, mushrooms, cottage cheese, peppers, smoked ham, smoked salmon or fresh herbs. Should you prefer a sweet filling mash some fresh fruit or fruit puree and serve with low fat or fat free yoghurt
