Children and adults all need a healthy breakfast to set them up for the day ahead. Children in particular need a balanced breakfast to boost their energy and alertness.

Whatever your child eats for breakfast, a glass of water with a glass of fruit juice is a great addition to breakfast, not only will these drinks keep them hydrated but it will tick off one of their 5 a day and is filled with amazing vitamins like vitamin C, which helps strengthen their immunity.
