Breakfast Theme

Every twelve months, OPAL introduces a new healthy lifestyle message to our community. The current message is ‘A healthy brekky is easy as…Peel, Pour, Pop’ to encourage families to start the day with a healthy brekky.

The message for 2013 is 'A healthy brekky is easy as...Peel, Pour, Pop' to encourage families to start the day with a healthy brekky.

We all know a healthy brekky is important for kids and parents. It provides a great start to the day and helps kids' learning and concentration. It also provides plenty of vitamins and minerals your kids need for a healthy body.


With all the breakfast cereals around and all the clever marketing it can be confusing at the supermarket. Some cereals can contain a lot of added sugar! By stocking up on healthy options, there will be lots of good choices at home that are also good value for money.

Some healthy brekky cereals with low sugar, low salt and high fibre include: This is not a complete list, but they are some examples;

  • Wheat biscuits such as Sanitarium Weet-bix,
  • Uncle Tobys Vita Brits or home brand wheat biscuits.
  • Porridge made from any plain rolled oats or quick cooking oats
  • Kellogs Sultana Bran
  • Kellogs Mini-wheats
  • Uncle Tobys Weeties

A healthy brekky can be more than just cereal. Try…

Plain or toasted wholegrain or fruit breads.Fresh, frozen or tinned fruit in natural juiceProteins like baked beans, eggs, reduced fat milks, yoghurts and cheese.
