Do I 'need' to eat breakfast?

At Fernwood, we believe in a balanced, healthy lifestyle, which includes three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner (with wholesome snacks in between!). Skipping one or more of these meals may lead to unhealthy eating habits, such as binge eating, or mean you’re not getting important nutrients to keep you energised throughout the day. 

Starting your morning with a healthy breakfast is essential. According to Nutrition Australia, breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, increases your energy levels, and also improves memory and concentration. If you want to get the most out of your day, eating a well-balanced breakfast is a must. 

Your first meal of the day doesn’t need to be boring. You may not have the time to whip up a café-style smashed avo on toast, but there are many tasty options you can prepare in just a few minutes. We've put together our best healthy breakfasts so you'll never want to miss the most important meal of the day again.

These recipes have all been written by our Fernwood nutritionist.
