I just don't get it - no wonder there is an obesity problem in this country

you must be pretty dim then.

are you talking about biscuit biscuits, or breakfast biscuits ? coz there's a difference

WorraLiberty Wed 27-Aug-14 23:25:10

Yeah it's the breakfast biscuits wot dunnit

DoubtfireDear Wed 27-Aug-14 23:25:17

Chocolate Hobnobs and tea are a great breakfast.

What's a breakfast biscuit?

Fairylea Wed 27-Aug-14 23:27:54

No real difference between pancakes or croissants or waffles to be honest, all of which are considered pretty standard occasional breakfast foods.

Because I want them...

Are there rules on breakfast?

Also have you seen the nutritional info on some cereals? Biscuits often look the better option.

I only have biscuits at weekend. It's chocolate cake for breakfast the rest of the week . . . .

After a particularly bad night with the kids last night I had a kit kat chunky first thing this morning.

I hate to say it but it did make me feel better. Not something I make a habit of though. More desperation for an Android instant fix.

I know!

Pizza or cake is the only suitable breakfast.

Silly biscuits

ilovelamp82 Wed 27-Aug-14 23:30:59

Android???? Don't know where that came from. Must be all the sugar affecting my typing.

Would nature valley bars count as biscuits?

Blondie1984 Wed 27-Aug-14 23:35:23

Am talking about what they call breakfast biscuits - but you may as well eat a digestive - can't believe they are allowed to pretend they are vaguely healthy

Blondie1984 Wed 27-Aug-14 23:36:06

No Nature Valley are cereal bars

Blondie1984 Wed 27-Aug-14 23:37:15

And Pizza would be a better option as long as it isn't covered in too much cheese - at least then you are getting carbs, protein and some fat as opposed to sugar

Dd is 2 and sometimes has Fig Rolls for breakfast. They're not really biscuits are they?

phantomnamechanger Wed 27-Aug-14 23:38:58

lots of stuff marketed as vaguely healthy breakfast isn't really

most cereals for a start

ouryve Wed 27-Aug-14 23:39:46

Fig rolls definitely in the same camp as jaffa cakes on the cake-biscuit spectrum.

The WHO recently stated somewhere, can't remember where that they would be pleased/ suggested placing many popular breakfast cereals in the biscuit Isles as they can only be considered as such.
Some breakfast biscuits are far more nutritious than cereals.

Biscuits are fine. You eat them later in the day, why are they evil in the morning.

Barabajagal Wed 27-Aug-14 23:41:37

Hands up who wants to go and live in the Biscuit Isles?

TheCunkOfPhilomena Wed 27-Aug-14 23:44:55

I'll go Barabajagal <gets passport>

I had a bakewell tart for breakfast yesterday.

feesh Wed 27-Aug-14 23:48:57

Been living overseas for a few years and I was absolutely stunned when I went into Sainsbury's this summer and saw the enormous array of breakfast biscuits and other 'eat on the go' breakfast products. Weetabix in a bottle? Seriously?

Come on Britain, wtf are you playing at, make time for a proper breakfast! I despair!

WorraLiberty Wed 27-Aug-14 23:52:47

I just wish I could eat anything for breakfast

My stomach is a no go area before 11am at the very earliest.

It's been that way since I was about 12 I think.
