As mums we lead busy lives and need all the energy we can get. Whether you’re new to motherhood or a mum of four, you’ll know that mornings are always hectic, making sure the kids are up, happy, fed and dropped off to school, which leaves us with very little time. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and so many of us busy mums miss it out completely, hunting for the kid’s school shoes, which isn’t healthy at all. Ditch those cereals that are high in sugar and try out these delicious and healthy recipes that will give you a steady release of energy throughout the day.
