Nutritionists consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day - Eating breakfast can help improve moods and give a feeling of well being.
27 million people in the UK regularly skip breakfast, resulting in a deficiency in essential minerals and nutrients that they will struggle to make up during the rest of the day – this gives you as an out of home caterer a distinct opportunity to offer the right breakfast options – helping to close that nutrition gap and maximise your sales.
Thinking about your customers - Ideally they should be looking to consume around 25% of your daily calories from breakfast (for a man eating 2500 calories a day this would be around 625 calories, for a women eating 2000 calories, around 500 calories).
A healthy, low fat breakfast - something like a glass of fruit juice followed by a bowl of Kellogg’s Bran Flakes with semi-skimmed milk and a banana - will provide:
- 100% of your Recommended Daily Amount (RDA) of vitamin C.
- 70% of your RDA of folic acid.
- 53% of your RDA of iron.
