New year, new school term. That’s right parents, it’s that time of year again! Between sourcing new school shoes, preparing permission notes and the daily stress of the school run, it’s no wonder you’re still daydreaming about lazy days by the pool! Take the madness out of your mornings by trying our new back to school, low GI breakfast recipes. Packed with all the nutrients you need to kick start the day, these delicious and simple recipes are perfect for you and your little ones and will surely become household faves!
The following brekky suggestions are centred around foods with a low Glycemic Index (GI). Low GI foods such as yoghurt, whole oats, fruit, wholegrain bread and green veggies are important for you and the fam as they help to stabilise your blood glucose (sugar levels). This in turn prevents those naughty, sugary cravings and extends your energy levels throughout the day – can I get an AMEN?!
