Rise and Shine - Breakfast for Kids

What did you have for breakfast this morning? 

If you have kids, what did they have?

While I insist that my kids eat breakfast every morning, it is a case of "do as I say" and not "do as I do". It is not uncommon for me to miss breakfast myself on a jam-packed routine weekday, although I am now more conscious about eating, and eating healthy.

Here are some stats provided by the Breakfast for Kids team. I am hoping that the 46% who say that kids do not have the time to eat, have kids who get something in their tummies during the school recess:

This campaign aims to promote daily healthy breakfast eating habits among children aged 4-12 years old. The team has organised ambient installations, storytelling sessions, and theatre performances to engage parents and children, highlighting the importance of healthy breakfast eating. Have a look at their Events page for more information about how you can join in.

The campaign finale will be a Rise and Shine Carnival, featuring the largest breakfast picnic in Singapore taking place on 3 March 2013. Sounds like fun! Do keep tabs on their website for details about how you and your family can join in.

Here's to healthy breakfasts!

I'm a Rise and Shine ambassador and will be a partner in promoting information about children's health and development this year. Watch this space for future posts!

I LOVE breakfast and hardly ever skip it and I never skipped it in the morning, but I do admit when you're up at 5.30 it's pretty hard to swallow your slice of bread.

I'm also shocked that more parents aren't giving their kids wholemeal and wholegrain choices and Fruit Loops, I can't believe they still sell it.
