Hot on the heels of Mother’s Day, comes news that Queensland restaurants and café are charging big bucks for breakfast.
I love a breakfast created for me by someone else as much as the next mother
But I must say I’m not up for paying $3.50 for a serve of butter when you’ve already shelled out $4.50 for a plate of dry toast. (Seriously? If you’re not happy about it, vote with your feet.)
Luckily, my Mother’s Day was served up to me in bed. And made at home, by my two mini-Masterchefs.
Yes, both children decided they needed to cook me breakfast, and even Tech Guy couldn’t convince them to work together to make just one. He did, however, do the supervision safety thing whilst making me a good cup of coffee – all while I enjoyed my longed-for sleep in.
I couldn’t fault the chefs, the barista, or the service, which was followed by presents in bed.

On normal working/school days, cereal and/or toast and fruit are usually the order of the day.
So I was intrigued when we were asked to trial Kelloggs Australia’s (http://www.kelloggs.com.au) special ‘eat me crunchy’ bowls, which are designed to keep your cereal dry. And crunchy.
The idea is that you put the milk in the bottom of the bowl and let the cereal sit up top. Then you simply dip your cereal into the milk and eat. Perfect for someone who prefers the cereal to stay crunchy, not soft!
We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, breaking the overnight fast and kick-starting the metabolism, mind and body for the rest of the day.
Kids who eat have breakfast perform better at school (as do adults at work, study and play)), and we all tend to eat less when we’ve had a decent start to the day. You don’t need me to tell you.
Plus eating cereal is also way cheaper (and usually healthier) than eating out, and quicker as well during the morning rush. In fact a bowl of Kelloggs cereal would cost around 27 cents, depending on the size of the serving.
So even a serial cereal eater won’t break the bank, right?
But did you know that the way you eat your cereal reveals a lot about your personality.
Food for thought?
Even Buzzfeed has weighed in on the cereal debate!
