I have to say that I’ve always eaten breakfast. As children it was never optional and I don’t think I could start the day without it now. I’ve made sure Monkey knows no different either. It’s a mealtime that sets us up for the day. Apparently 47% of us don’t have breakfast on a daily basis so Princes help to liven up breakfast, and hope to encourage more people to make the change.
I am a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast – cereal, toast and a cup of tea. So the team at Princes thought they try to liven up my breakfast with a few variations.
Personally I don’t like citrus fruit in any guise so Daddy P was very pleased to add some Grapefruit and Mandarin segments to his bowl of cereal. He works very strange hours, and breakfast for him is never normally 6-7am, but whenever he wakes up that’s breakfast time, without fail. He really liked the idea of adding a bit of fruit to his cereal, for an added boost.
Now for me, I have always loved tinned peaches, big fan! I had flu recently and totally lost my appetite for a week. When I started to recover I really needed a bit of a lift and decided to mix my traditional breakfast up a bit. So I left my normal cereal in the cupboard and had peaches and natural yogurt instead. Really refreshing and a great alternative.
I’ve got some Granola in the cupboard and I’m going to try another suggestion from Princes in the week – adding Princes Californian Pitted Prunes to my granola with a bit of natural yogurt too. I don’t really use prunes, and I probably should. When Monkey was younger I used to make him porridge with prunes all the time, so time to bring them back into the cupboards.
Other ideas include making a fruit smoothie using Princes Pure Orange or Apple & Raspberry Juice with Princes Peach Slices.
You can find Princes products in your local supermarket from as little as 99p for a 415g tin of Peach Slices.
