As it’s National Breakfast Week, my family and I thought we’d shine a light on our favourite options for the most important meal of the day.

Hopefully it inspires those 45 per cent of people who skip breakfast at least once a week – so go eat and kick start your day!

My girls love a scrambled egg sunshine like my Nanny used to make.

I love a vegetarian version of Nasi Lemak, a Malay dish of rice cooked in coconut milk, curry/chilli sauce, boiled egg and fried onions (or for fish lovers – anchovies).

When my youngest daughter was in hospital last year, we were sent out of the Intensive Care Unit for hand-over around breakfast time.

So shake up your wake up this #BreakfastWeek
