October is Health Awareness Month

For Health Awareness month Category 3 Design will be looking at breakfast for school kids at West Island Cocos (Keeling) Islands school campus. At the recent Loud Shirt and Jeans for Genes day I baked 3 dozen delicious coconut orange jam muffins (made with West Island coconut) for the students to enjoy along with fresh coconut, fruit, muesli and yoghurt.

For Health Awareness month why not make sure that you start your day right with a good breakfast. A good breakfast can be small or big - it depends on your eating preferences - make sure it has some good quality cereal like wholemeal bread or rolled oats, some fruit or vegies (juice, a piece of fruit or grilled vegies) and dairy or lean meat or nuts.

A quick on-the-go breakfast I take for an early morning commute across the lagoon is peanut butter on a thick piece of home-baked wholemeal bread and a guava.

Eating breakfast will help stop you overeating later in the day.
