Feeling fruity in the morning? Have fruit for breakfast!

Having fruit for breakfast is a great way to start the day!

Most of us know due to a successful NHS campaign that we need to aim for  5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.  Eating well is so important for both physical and mental wellbeing.  However sometimes it’s easy to slip into unhealthy eating habits especially during difficult times.

During times of personal stress I found I wasn’t looking after myself as well as I could. I was eating quick snacks on the go such as toast and chocolate and drinking lots of coffee and carbonated drinks.  I really neglected myself during this time and fruit and vegetables weren’t high on the agenda. Sometimes it’s difficult to break an unhealthy eating spiral. But breaking that spiral can really help increase emotional and physical wellbeing.

A great way to start the day is to have a healthy breakfast.  If it feels too daunting to completely change your diet straight away then take little steps.  Try a small step and have fruit for breakfast. Simply add a piece of fruit with your usual breakfast.  A favourite of mine is porridge with a piece of fruit such as a banana or some berries.
