Ten best healthy breakfasts
1. SHARPHAM PARK BERRY PUFFS
Rich in iron and riboflavin and with a GI level of just 30, Sharpham Park's spelt puffs are a great way to start the day. Their low gluten structure means it's easy on the digestion too.
2. ALARA OT
Be warned, this Banana porridge is so delicious you may find yourself snacking on it morning, noon and night. Made from whole grains, it's high in protein and water-soluble fibre.
3. AMISA BREAKFAST MUFFIN
These muffins may be dairy, gluten and wheat-free but that doesn't mean they're light on taste. Packed full of vanilla they'll sate your sweet tooth and help you shed those pounds.
4. LIZI'S GRANOLA
Made with Jumbo oats, coconut and pecans soaked in treacle, this granola won a gold star at the 2009 Great Taste Awards. A bowl gives you nearly a quarter of your vitamin E, zinc and selenium RDA.
5. HEINZ BAKED BEANS
Don't overlook the mighty baked bean when you're looking for a healthy breakfast. Baked beans are high in fibre, virtually fat-free, and a serving counts as one of your five a day.
6. GEOBAR FRUIT, NUT AND HONEY
If you're in a rush in the morning, don't skip breakfast ? pick up a healthy breakfast bar instead. This one is salt-free and has a good balance between fat and carbohydrate, so it should see you through until elevenses.
£1.75 for six
7. INNOCENT KIWI, APPLE AND LIME SMOOTHIE
Ditch the bacon and eggs and plump for a healthy smoothie instead. This one contains more fruit than you could shake a stick at and accounts for 120 per cent of your RDA of Vitamin C and 23 per cent of your GDA fibre.
8. TIMS DAIRY LOW FAT STRAWBERRY YOGHURT
Nutritious and delicious, this low-fat strawberry yoghurt is as creamy and satisfying as the full-fat stuff. Throw in some bananas and raspberries for a healthy start to the day
9. WHOLE EARTH ORGANIC COCOA BEARS
Getting your children to eat a healthy breakfast can be a tricky business. Not with these low-fat, multigrain cereals, however, which are bear-shaped and pleasingly chocolatey.
10. MOMA! OATIE BREAKFAST
A delicious mix of jumbo oats, apple juice and probiotic yoghurt, Moma Oatie's Breakfast will keep you powered up until lunchtime, without contributing to that new year paunch.
Tired of fattening fry-ups and sugary cereals? From great granola to yummy yoghurts, there are lots of other, more nutritious ways, to start the day
