Beaconhouse & Yogood Kickstarts The Year Championing Breakfast for kids

Beaconhouse teamed up with Yogood Malaysia to create awareness on the importance for children to start the day right with a nutritious breakfast. Over 60 pupils at Beaconhouse Sri Inai International School in Taman Sea has turned into young chefs to build their own breakfast jar together with their parents.

The activity help to foster precious bonding moments and the children learn about healthy eating. Empowering kids to take ownership of their breakfasts is a great move to ensure thy eat their breakfast the way they want to, creating good habits on nutrition. This saves some time for the parent, and the child will be more likely to eat his or her delicious creation.

Celebrity guest and hands-on mum Daphne Iking led the children in creating their own unique versions of breakfast in a jar using yoghurt, Crunchy Muesli from Yogood, honey and fruits.

"Breakfast Jars are quick, healthy and delicious and they're super easy to make no matter how busy your mornings are. If it's a struggle to get your kids to eat breakfast, this is a fun way to engage them. Kids will have fun making it themselves and eating it ou of a jar is a treat on its own," said Daphne, a busy working Mom of 3 young children.

Mr. Ali Raza, Regional Director of Beaconhouse Group of Schools said that no matter how difficult, parents must make it a priority for their kids have a nutritious meal before heading to school.

"Breakfast is the meal that fuels the beginning of the school day. After a rejuvenating night of sleep, the brain and body need fuel to operate. Studies have shown that kids who eat breakfast perform better academically than kids who don't. This is our initiative to educate the kids on the importance of good nutrition and what this means," explained Mr.Ali.

Yogood, a brand that produces healthy food made from wholesome grains, quality nuts and fruits was the main partner advocating good nutrition for children alongside Beaconhouse. Junita Ee, Brand manager for Yogood Malaysia said the brand came on board as it sees a great opportunity to create a positive paradigm shift to get more Malaysians to take healthier eating habits starting with breakfast.

"While having breakfast is crucial, what goes into the breakfast is just as important. Whole grains are absorbed by the body more slowly so that you don't get a blood sugar spike, and they, along with fibre and protein, are more likely to keep your child's belly feeling happy until snack time or lunch," said Junita.

With the Breakfast in a Jar project, Beaconhouse wishes to get more parents on board to fuel their children's morning with proper nutrition leading to better learning and performance in school.
