Ham is a healthy choice for breakfast

Good breakfast to school

The Breakfast drink should primarily provide the body with fluids - if possible without sugar. In addition to water, unsweetened herbal or fruit teas are also suitable. Caffeinated drinks such as coffee are not suitable for schoolchildren.

Cereal products such as (wholemeal) bread, muesli or other cereals, e.g. flakes, flakes, pops etc. provide the body with those carbohydrates that keep the blood sugar level constant and have a positive influence on the performance curve at school. But be careful: Many breakfast cereals and muesli mixes such as chocolate flakes, crispy or chocolate muesli, granolas, porridges etc. sometimes contain high amounts of sugar and fat. Better to use muesli mixes without added sugar or whole grain flakes. You can also put together your own muesli mix with your child, depending on their taste - ground nuts, for example, are an ideal addition.

For those who love variety and like it spicy in the morning, for example (wholemeal) bread with lean cheese and lean ham or vegetarian spread and some chopped vegetables are an ideal breakfast.

Milk and low-fat dairy products such as yogurt, cheese, cream cheese, cottage cheese or pot preparations are an important part of a breakfast for smart people. If dairy products are missing at breakfast, they can also be consumed during the school break (pay attention to the sugar content).

fruit and vegetables, cut in one piece or in wedges or combined with other foods, e.g. yoghurt with strawberries, muesli with pear, bread with cucumber slices, is the ideal addition to a healthy breakfast. For those who don't like fruit, it can also be fruit juices without added sugar - they provide the body with important vitamins and minerals.
