Back to work, back to school…back to breakfast!

Back to work, back to school…back to breakfast!

The back to school date has arrived, mornings are crazy to get through…. Kiwis need to start eating breakfast. A belVita Breakfast survey showed that 46% of us skip breakfast at least once a week and almost a third of breakfast skippers, skip up to three times a week, due in large part to hectic lifestyles and time-poor families.

More FM’s new breakfast radio host, Hayley Holt, who is appearing in the new belVita TV campaign, is no stranger to early starts and rushed mornings. Hayley’s morning routine needs to be down pat to get to work on time and this often means having breakfast on the run.

“The best advice I can give is to ensure you have a good breakfast. I set my alarm for 4:30am (allowing time for two five-minute snoozes!) and have to be at the studio at 5am so don’t have any time for breakfast. I find belVita Breakfast biscuits not only convenient because I just throw them in my bag with a piece of fruit, and yogurt tub and take them to work with me but they are also really delicious.

“Another tip is to be super organised, I get myself sorted the night before. I pack my bags and make sure I have everything I need ready. I was told another great way to be organised was to get up 15 minutes earlier than you need to which would be doable for most but I’m definitely not setting my alarm for 4:15am!” said Hayley.

Nutritionist Ginny McArthur believes New Zealanders really need to make a conscious effort to eat breakfast to ensure we have enough energy to get through the morning.

“The survey showed that breakfast is being sacrificed in favour of other morning priorities, resulting in nearly 80% of kiwis who skip breakfast feeling some negative effect by lunchtime, including lethargy, anger and difficulty concentrating.

“Breakfast on the move is a reality for many of us especially with going back to work and kids going back to school. Far too many of us fail to take the time to stop and eat properly. belVita Breakfast biscuits are a great breakfast product, you can have them on the bus, in the car or at the office, with a piece of fruit and your trim coffee.

“They offer you a no excuses breakfast product as part of a balanced breakfast, and the best thing is you can keep them anywhere – in the glove box, your desk drawer or even your handbag,” says Ginny.

belVita Breakfast biscuits are specially designed for breakfast and with careful ingredient selection and a gentle baking process, belVita Breakfast biscuits are scientifically shown to provide a sustained release of carbohydrates over four hours when eaten with a glass of low fat milk.

belVita breakfast biscuits are conveniently packaged with six individually wrapped packets of four biscuits in each box and available in four delicious flavours – Milk &Cereals, Fruit & Fibre, Crunchy Oats and Honey & Nut with Choc Chips. belVita Breakfast biscuits can be found in the biscuit aisle of the supermarkets across New Zealand.
