Why can’t my child have cereals for breakfast?

by Tinsley House Clinic on July 6th, 2010

Apart from the fact that many breakfast cereals have high sugar and salt contents, you have to bear in mind that your child probably has not eaten for more than 12 hours. Therefore, the first meal of the day needs to be a mixture of proteins, fats and carbohydrates that will keep the digestive system busy for most of the morning as opposed to cereals that can be processed by the body in a little over an hour.

A cooked breakfast not only provides the body with a variety of foods but also helps to keep the blood sugar levels steady thus helping to prevent health issues in the future.
