Sam Wood shares 5 family-friendly breakfast recipes that can be prepared in under 5 minutes.

With breakfast being one of the most important meals of the day, you need to get the nutritional balance right and ensure both you and your kid’s breakfasts have a mix of protein, veggies or fruits, and carbohydrates. 

At home, the girls like variety at breakfast. They need to enjoy it, but it’s also really important to make sure they’re getting a few servings of fruit and veggies, which is a food group frequently forgotten about at breakfast time. 

The five recipes below tick all the boxes for my family: quick, simple, tasty and nutritious. With plenty of variety.
