It's the pizza isn't it?

I think it would be fascinating.

I now try and eat high protein as it fills me up for the day.

Besides I LOVE egg on toast.

Shame the sausage and chips at lunchtime is not so good!

i suppose it depends how thick you spread the nutella tho...

diddl Thu 15-Oct-09 10:42:37

The pizza´s not so good on the caleries and fat, though.

FlamingoBingo Thu 15-Oct-09 10:45:24

Pizza has less fat than the egg on toast! shock

And calories are good for children.

pooexplosions Thu 15-Oct-09 10:54:34

calories and fat are both good for children. And make things taste nice! grin

Can I confess that I usually have no idea what the dc have for breakfast unless they spill it everywhere or use every single drop of milk.

I think a muller corner yoghurt was involved today as I found two empty pots on top of the bin.

Dd (8) gets up and sorts herself and ds out. The only thing she can't do is anything involving the hob but she uses the toaster and micriwave. She has been doing this for about a year now whilst I have an extra 15 mnis in bed.

overmydeadbody Thu 15-Oct-09 11:16:00

Is 350 calories an enormous breakfast riven? I thought breakfast should be one of your main meals of the day, so even 500 calories wouldn't be too much would it?

MrsBadger Thu 15-Oct-09 11:16:26

oh yes the nutella was a 'generous' portion ie 15g per piece of toast:

scanty nutella on brown (2 slices Tesco wholemeal medium sliced with 15g Tesco organic chocolate hazelnut spread)
245 calories
8.8g protein
36g carb of which 32.9g complex carbs

5.2g fibre
0.8g salt

Nice one, MrsBadger!

my mum sees school kids queuing up at gregg's at 8 in the morning near her work to buy a meal deal for brakfast. What's the nutritional value of that one, badge?
