Cultivate healthy eating habits
MOST breakfast choices in Malaysia tend to be deficient in fibre and high in calories due to the high sugar and fat content.
As an example, one plate of nasi lemak with a cup of teh tarik contains about 500 to 600 calories, which is very high in energy, while offering low fibre content.
The Malaysian Association for the Study of Obesity ( Maso) found an increase in the consumption of fat and sugar between 1960 and 2000 and reported a decrease in the fibre content of cereals within the same time.
Choosing a healthy breakfast is paramount to your health and a breakfast cereal or snack food rich in cereal fibre ( oat beta- glucan) is ideal.
Keep an eye out for foods that contain reduced sugar and fat ( which mean lower calories consumed) but are high in fibre content, as it is the best choice for you and your family.
High blood cholesterol and high blood sugar levels do not just affect adults but children as well.
Children are at high risk of developing high blood cholesterol if they are obese due to poor eating habits and lack of physical activity.
