NHS - Healthy Breakfast Recipes

Get into the habit of eating a morning meal with these simple breakfasts, designed to whet the appetite of even the most habitual breakfast-skipper.

Not hungry first thing in the morning? Pushed for time? Trying to lose weight? These calorie-counted treats will tempt you to rediscover the pleasure of breakfast.

From energy-boosting "apple pie" porridge and protein-packed scrambled eggs to a nutrient-rich green smoothie and granola bars, there's something for everyone.

"Creating the habit of eating in the morning is something you can build towards," says dietitian Alison Hornby. "Start off with a light bite, such as a piece of fruit or low-fat yoghurt.

"After a while, your morning appetite will naturally increase, and you'll probably find you eat less throughout the day, including snacks."

Research suggests people who eat breakfast are slimmer because they tend to eat less during the day – particularly fewer high-calorie snacks.

If you're short on time in the morning, think about ways to keep your breakfast choice simple. You could also try waking up 10 minutes earlier or getting other chores out of the way ahead of time.
