Are you getting the most out of your morning?

Here at Meridian we wanted to delve deeper into your breakfast habits, and our findings were shocking.

Our recent survey revealed that breakfast’s position as ‘the most important meal of the day’ is under serious threat, with time constraints and busy lifestyles making it rushed and boring. We discovered that whilst breakfast is still eaten at least 4 times a week by two thirds of Brits surveyed (62%), nearly half (47%) allow less than ten minutes for breakfast each morning. The average time dedicated to breakfast was just 13 minutes, compared to 21 minutes for lunch and 30 minutes for dinner. Worryingly one in ten (11%) people surveyed don’t eat breakfast at all.

Below is a sneak peak into our breakfast morning with James Haskell.

We also found out that the UK’s favourite breakfast choices were cereal, toast and porridge however you also told us (49.9% of those surveyed) that you would like more variety for breakfast.

Now we can all be partial to some nut butter on toast, but did you know that nut butters can be used in a variety of breakfast dishes to provide you with that much needed energy to get you through the morning?

We’re on a mission to educate everyone on the importance of a well-balanced breakfast and the ease and versatility of introducing nut butters at the start of the day. Just stirring nut butter into your morning porridge increases B vitamins, iron, magnesium and zinc all of which are needed for energy creation.
