1. Sugary, highly-refined cereals We all know that children's cereals in colorful boxes are to be avoided because of their terrifying sugar content. But breakfast cereals, which are promoted as "healthy" choices but are also high in sugar, are even more dangerous.


2. Pancakes or waffles

If you've ever made pancakes from scratch, you know that they are made with flour, eggs, milk, and sugar, as well as a leavening agent that gives them their fluidity, such as baking soda. There are also vegan pancake recipes that substitute eggs and milk, and gluten-free flour can also be used to make gluten-free pancakes.

Bagels are heavier than many other baked goods and are a popular choice for grab-and-go breakfasts, as they tend to hold their contents better than regular bread without getting soggy.


3. Bagels and their fillings

Muffins are delicious, but let's face it, by eating a muffin for breakfast, we're allowing ourselves to eat cake for breakfast, and it's probably only for our birthday every year! Even a muffin that we are sold as "healthy", such as a blueberry muffin with fruit filling, is still more or less a cake.


4. Muffins and pastries

Who doesn't like coffee and orange juice for breakfast? A small glass of fresh fruit juice (about 150 ml) is fine in itself if it complements an otherwise balanced breakfast. The problems start if you drink a lot more each day.
