Some good choice of breakfast foods includes; oranges, wholemeal bread, coffee, tea, yoghurt, strawberries, blueberries, melons such as water melon and cantaloupe, oatmeal, wimbi porridge, rich cereals, peanut butter, eggs, bananas, sweet potatoes, watermelon, nduma (arrow root). Try as much as possible to eat fruit in its natural whole form as opposed to juices as this ensures that one is able to get all the nutrients and fibre from it. Foods like mandazi, chapati, margarine, butter, sausages, bacons should not be a daily staple as breakfast choices. Though rich in calories they are not rich in the broad nutritional sense. They can however be used on occasion as they too have their place in terms of diversifying the breakfast experience in terms of flavour.
