As many of us know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s crucial to start your mornings with a filling, nutritious breakfast to fuel your body and start the day off right.
Another great way of getting your brain going in the morning is to spark insightful conversation, so why not combine the two! Breakfast and brilliant conversation are the perfect combination to get the whole family fuelled and raring for the day ahead.
The lovely people over at MOMA are on a mission to make mornings more awesome by offering delicious and nutritious oaty breakfasts and warming porridges, that are super simple, quick and cater for all tastes.
I’ve teamed up with MOMA to bring you a few post-breakfast conversation topics to help the whole family make the most of morning times!
1. ‘If you wrote a book, who would be the main character and what would they do?’
Kids are bursting with creativity and what better way to tap into this that allowing them to create their own story!
There may not be enough hours in the day for the full story, however, getting your kids to describe the adventure their character would go on is an easy way to get their brains buzzing in the morning.
You could even make things more interesting by asking them to choose something on the table to include in the story! Whichever option you go for, you’ll be sure to hear some interesting and hilarious stories next breakfast time.
2. ‘If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?’
Kids generally have a different perspective on most things in life, so asking them about their dream superpower might give you some surprising responses!
As adults after seeing many superhero movies, we may be inclined to go for the standard powers of invisibility or the ability to climb walls when asked this question. However, kids can often use their creativity to come up with interesting and unusual powers.
3. ‘Where’s your favourite place?’
This is a great question to help you learn a little bit more about your children. Whether they say their bedroom or even last year’s holiday location, it will give you an insight into the sort of things they like to do and provides a fantastic starting point for an informative conversation.
Be sure to ask kids why the place they mentioned is their favourite to get them talking even more and delve deeper into their answer.
4. ‘If we swapped places for a day, what would you do?’
If you want to find out what your children think you really do all day then this is the question to ask!
This could be an opportunity to explain what your job actually involves and see what your kids are interested in. Alternatively, you could get some silly answers thrown into the mix, but either way, you’ll have some entertaining responses to think about during the day.
5. ‘What do you want to achieve by the end of the day?’
This is a great question to ask yourself as well as your kids because it helps you get your goals in mind so you can work towards achieving them.
After getting into a routine, it’s easy to go into autopilot and lose sight of the tasks at hand. It’s important to stop and think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it every now and then so that you can see the benefits of your efforts.
