I've always struggled with finding the time (and the desire) to eat a balanced breakfast in the morning, and despite me constantly telling my kids that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it is definitely a case of do as I say, and not as I do! The worst thing is that on the days I miss breakfast, I find that my whole day gets derailed, since I am usually starving by mid-morning, and then make poor choices for the rest of the day. So I was thrilled when Nuffnang offered me a chance to try the new BelVita Cranberry breakfast biscuit.
I am pretty sure that BelVita came out a little while ago (I am vaguely aware of seeing ads for them), but because they are found in the biscuit aisle, I never came across them. The cranberry version I was sent is a new variant and it is delicious! And really, is there anything more delightful than starting your day with a biscuit? Filled with 5 wholegrains (nearly half of your daily recommendation), fibre and with a low GI, these biscuits, together with a homemade latte in my reusable takeaway cup and a piece of fruit, add up to a balanced breakfast that I can eat and drink on the go, and that keeps me going until lunchtime.
Since trying the cranberry variety, which was delicious and fruity, I went out and purchased the other flavours as well. Fruit and Fibre was my next favourite and hubby's first choice, with the fruit adding a hint of chewiness, while the Honey Nut Choc Chip was the kids' choice (no surprise there!). While I still insist on my kids having a sit-down breakfast, these BelVita breakfast biscuits offer me a convenient breakfast without compromising on taste or nutrition.
