With the end of the June holidays coming up, it is time for the kids to think about heading back to school.
To prepare them well and quell any protests they may have, whip up a satisfying meal with FairPrice Housebrand products that will delight their stomachs and give them enough energy to power through the new school term.
A hearty, wholesome breakfast is a must to start the first day - and every day - on the right note.
Wake them up to tasty FairPrice Cereals Mini Pack 8's, which are made in Germany, are trans fat free and contain vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and E.
They come in four variants - Shellinos (chocolate shells of wheat), Corn Flakes, Chock 'n' Roll (chocolate rolls of corn) and Snowies (frosted corn flakes) - so even the pickiest eater can find his or her favourite.
They are versatile too, pairing perfectly with yogurt, milk, ice cream and even bread, like FairPrice Wholemeal Bread (420g + 80g).
A product of Singapore, it is halal certified and a Healthier Choice food (higher in wholegrains) and is also high in dietary fibre and iron. Trans fat free and cholesterol free, the bread is also enriched with calcium, Vitamin B1, B2 and B3.
Pop some of the cereal, nutritious peanut butter or protein-rich eggs on toast and you will be good to go until the next meal.
