Healthy Breakfasts to kick off National Obesity Week

January is a month of resolutions. Resolutions made in the hope of change. The change of bad habits to good ones.

This week, National Obesity Week kicks off an initiative led by the National Obesity Forum, an independent organisation of medical practitioners, to promote healthy living and encourage the UK to be that little bit healthier.

With 1 in 4 adults and 20% of children leaving primary school all considered obese, and with numbers expected to rise for the former to above 50% by 2050, the campaign for encouraging the UK to adopt a national New Year’s resolution and improve the nation’s health seems to be more important today than ever before.

To this end, we’ll be doing our bit to encourage you and your family make those small changes and help you on your way by bringing you a selection of healthy foods for five different food categories over the course of this week.

So let’s “Do something good for JanUary”, and kick things off with Healthy Breakfasts that are as healthy as you’re going to get:

Obesity in the UK

  • Obesity is a direct cause of sleep apnoea, depression, type 2 diabetes, stress, heart disease, arthritis, high blood pressure, infertility.
  • 60% of men, 50% of women and 25% of children could be obese by 2050.
  • 1 in 3 adults do 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a week.
  • 1 in 4 adults now considered obese… along with a fifth of children.
  • These rates have almost doubled in 20 years.

Healthy Breakfasts

1. Spoon Cereals


Spoon Cereals launched as London’s first breakfast cereal pop-up at a small food fair in SW London in September 2013. Founders and brother and sister in law, Annie and Jonny spent their days making homemade granolas, which they served with a menu of fresh toppings at food markets, city banks, music festivals and train stations.

The duo won the seal of approval from the thousands of people that they met on their journey, which gave them the confidence to appear on the BBC TV programme, Dragons’ Den. Their success on the show has helped the team develop their most popular granola products and distribute them to some of their favourite retailers across the UK.
