French toast offers a combination of a wholegrain starchy food for longer lasting energy; together with egg and salmon/ham, which supplies a high quality protein as they contain essential amino acids in the right proportions.

What makes this a good choice?

Salmon offers a supply of fatty acids, like omega-3, necessary for the development of the brain. Try to include 1-2 fish meals a week. Choosing 100% pure fruit juice as an occasional substitute is acceptable. Remember to dilute your child’s fruit juice.
