Have you had breakfast yet??

Here’s something to think about whilst you tuck into your toast.

Breakfast is proven to be the most important meal of the day. Have you ever heard the phrase eat Breakfast Like a King, Lunch like a Queen and Dinner like a Pauper?

Since I have become a Mum I have to admit I am failing to follow my own advice. It’s far too easy in the rush to get ready for work and the girls ready for nursery to spend the time feeding them and not myself. As a result, I normally skip breakfast altogether, or have something mid morning by which point I am ravenous and normally opt for something naughty like a packet of crisps!

I am sure I am not alone in this.

There is one way in which you can change this habit this May, whilst raising some money and doing something wonderful for a great cause in the process.

Christian Aid are back this May with their Big Brekkie campaign, and are asking friends and work colleagues to get together for a Big Brekkie whilst raising money for others who can’t afford to fund their own food this spring. It’s a great chance to sit down with friends, have a natter and a cup of tea (warm for once!) whilst supporting a fantastic campaign for those less fortunate than ourselves.

As someone who has hosted similar charity events at my place of work before, they always go down an absolute treat, and are a great way of getting colleagues together who might otherwise work independently or in different departments. Why not ask colleagues to all bring a breakfast item (whether it be bacon baps or pain de chocolat), and ask for a donation or ‘entry fee’ in return for them helping themselves to a pick and mix breakfast of their choice?

You can download a fundraising pack and guide to hosting your own Big Brekkie here, as well as editable resources for posters and flyers in your place of work.

Tuck in to change lives, and dig in and dig deep!
