Farmhouse Breakfast Week champions the importance of eating breakfast and aims to get the nation to shake up its wake up and incorporate breakfast into our routine. The campaign is organised on behalf of UK cereal farmers and producers, who grow and process foods used to make breakfast products.
Experts come together to give the latest advice and nutritional information about why it’s important to make time for breakfast. This year, TV cookery expert and mum of two, Nadia Sawalha will be offering hints and tips on how to make time for breakfast and sharing one of her favourite breakfast recipes. Leading dietician Nigel Denby will be offering expert health advice and healthy breakfast options.
New research conducted for Farmhouse Breakfast Week 2013 shows that nearly half of us (47%) skip breakfast at some point during the week and 15 per cent do not eat it at all! These figures are surprising, considering that scientific research has shown that eating breakfast can make you healthier and happier. We have a variety of reasons for why we skip our morning meal, which include not feeling hungry in the morning, preferring to stay in bed and not liking breakfast foods. For mums in particular, more than a third (39%) say getting other members of the family ready and household chores take priority over their first meal of the day.
