The breakfast offered should include a choice of four food groups: – Milk-based drinks or products Cereals – these can be whole-wheat biscuits, corn flakes, rice based cereal, shredded wholegrain wheat biscuits, malted wheat squares, bran flakes, or porridge. None of these options must be sugar coated. Fruit – this can be a selection of chopped fresh fruit or dried fruit to add to the cereals, fruit canned in natural fruit juice, or unsweetened fruit juices. Breads served with low fat spread and reduced sugar jams and marmalade. Children should be provided with the option of having one item from each of the four food groups.
