 Hi readers, it’s Emily, Kerry and William here this week, as promised, talking about breakfast.


We, Kerry and Emily, don’t always bother with breakfast, because we might not feel hungry or simply just don’t feel like it. We agreed though, that if we miss breakfast, we tend to eat more rubbish later in the day. For example, if I Kerry, have a decent breakfast, like porridge with yogurt and banana, and maybe pasta for lunch, that will see me through, sometimes even until bedtime.


For me, Emily, I don’t think it’s necessary to eat for the sake of it, like people often do, rather eat when you are hungry. So, I may just grab a coffee first thing. If I do have breakfast, it’s usually two pieces of toast with marmite or tomatoes. It depends on what I’ve been up to and how I’m feeling.


As for me, William, I almost always have breakfast, which is usually cereal and toast. I don’t eat breakfast on Mondays as I have an early lunch with my mates, and don’t want to spoil my appetite.


All this talk got us thinking as to how breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day. How we are told to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. We partly agree with this, especially because it can be difficult to get to sleep if you’ve eaten late at night. We still think it’s more about listening to our bodies. If we are going to have a very active day though and don’t feel like breakfast, we might still have it, to give us energy.


Next week we talk about what we eat, and why, so tune in and find out!
