You’ve probably heard plenty about how a healthy breakfast can increase your mental alertness and even make you less likely to overindulge later in the day. But breakfast is also prime time for getting important fertility-supporting nutrients like calcium, fibre and protein.

For weekend mornings or brunch with friends, try easy make-ahead dishes like the Red and Green Frittata packed
with colourful vegetables. Sweet baked goods like healthy muffins can be kept in the freezer for instant weekday breakfasts. And quick fixes like blended smoothies or homemade muesli (made ahead, of course) take just minutes to prepare.

Blueberry-Almond Muesli
Making your own version of this popular, healthy breakfast cereal ensures that you’re getting only the ingredients you need, like fibre and magnesium from the oats, and protein and calcium from the almonds.

Red and Green Frittata
Eggs have protein and iron, important nutrients for fertility. Broccoli is a good source of folate and fibre. This baked frittata, full of colourful vegetables, is a delicious way to eat them, for brunch or a light lunch or supper.

Cranberry-Raspberry Smoothie
A morning smoothie is a great way to get a serving of important fertility foods like calcium-rich yogurt and orange juice, which is a good source of folate.
