Stay energised and subdue the symptoms of morning sickness with these tasty ideas

Marbled fruity porridge
If you're suffering with morning sickness or feeling more tired than usual, breakfast might be the last thing on your mind when you first wake up.

But skipping meals during pregnancy means that your baby could be missing out on valuable vitamins and minerals needed for growth and development.

Providing your body with a healthy balanced breakfast will give you that energy boost that you need and may even help alleviate some of the nausea and fatigue that you're experiencing.

Try out some of these tasty breakfasts and get your day off to a decent start.

Berries and yoghurt
Try mixing blueberries, strawberries and raspberries with low fat natural yoghurt. Berries are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C. The yoghurt will provide calcium, which is important for baby's bone development.

Muesli
Cereals like muesli are packed with fibre which will keep you feeling full. Try sprinkling on some dried fruit or chopped banana for an extra energy boost.

Scrambled eggs on wholemeal toast
Eggs are a good source of protein which helps with your baby's general growth and brain development.

Fruit smoothie
A great way to kick start your 5 a day is with a fruit smoothie. Try making your smoothie with frozen fruits for an icy and refreshing breakfast. Or if you don't have a blender, chop up fresh fruit to make a fruit salad - that way you'll keep all the fibre in.

Porridge
As well as being a good source of fibre and whole grain, a bowl of warm milky porridge is easy on a delicate stomach so ideal if you've been suffering with morning sickness.
