Getting kids to eat breakfast is a tough job.
As many of us know all too well, getting kids to eat something before school can often be a challenge. And with breakfast being deemed the most important meal of the day, trying to find something that’s good for them but also easy for you can often feel like a daily struggle.
That's where dessert for breakfast comes in. Now we're not talking about waking up and eating a whole cake (although we have thought about it), we're talking about delicious sweet foods that can masquerade as breakfast foods.
Scientists recently announced that the key to long-term weight loss might be having a little dessert as part of your healthy, balanced breakfast, sweet-toothed dieters around the world rejoiced. The researchers, whose study was published in the journal Steroids, found that if you’re cutting calories and sugar, the best time to indulge in something sweet is in the morning because that’s when your metabolism is at its peak. The authors noted that it’s also important to include healthy carbohydrates and protein as part of your morning meal and stick to a low-calorie diet - meaning you can indulge without the guilt.
