A Fruity Friday Feast – Breakfast with Princes

If you are on Twitter you’ll have seen lots of fruity tweets with the hashtag #Princesbrekkie – several families have been chosen to receive a Princes fruity hamper to help us incorporate more fruit into our diets, starting with breakfast. The best of it is… it couldn’t be easier!

Breakfast time can be busy (and stressful!) but it really is the most important meal of the day. We decided to use some of our fabulous fruity treats for a buffet-style breakfast where we could explore!

Ready to dive in!


As you can see the fruity experiment was a huge success. Lots of tasting and mixing, fruit with toast, fruit on porridge (Kieran served Daddy a dish with different types), fruit on it’s own or with yogurt…. all washed down with lovely fresh fruit juices.

Any left up fruit has been chopped up and we are having fruit salad for pudding tonight so we will definitely be reaching our five portions a day target! Clearly incorporating fruit into our breakfast doesn’t have to be hard, or difficult. We will definitely be doing it more often.

Thumbs up to Princes!


Princes have generously offered to send one of my readers a fruity box of their own.

The Princes breakfast box includes a set of six bowls and six tumblers, table placemats, an alarm clock, a colouring book to entertain the kids, a relaxing candle for the mums, money-off coupons and, of course, a range of Princes canned fruit – including grapefruit segments, peach slices, pear halves, fruit cocktail, pineapple chunks and mandarin segments – and Princes pure juices.

To be in with a chance of winning simply leave a comment telling me your favourite fruit and leaving me a way to contact you.

**This giveaway ends on the 11th October and the winner will be chosen via a randomiser program.


***If I can’t get hold of the winner by the 18th October, a new winner’s name will be pulled.

  1. My favourite fruit has to be watermelon, no cherries, no melon. OKay I like both, if I absolutely had to pick one I would go for cherry being my favourite (especially in a pie with lashings of cream – yum!)

  2. It’s a toss up between strawberries and pineapple – in fact, both together makes a lovely summer breakfast!

    Haven’t had tinned peaches though for ages – happy childhood memories!!


  3. My favourite fruit is mango – I absolutely adore it in all its forms: juice, fruit itself, ice cream, sweets….It’s fabulous chopped and added to Greek yoghurt, sprinkled with brown sugar and grilled, cubed up into cereal, added to a crumble, frozen slices floating in a long drink, or just on its own!

  4. The good old British apple is my favourite – especially now in ‘apple season’ support local πŸ˜‰

  5. Apples and strawberries are my favourite! I grew my own strawberries this year and it was great to just pick them from the garden and eat!

  6. My favourite is Mango but it can be a pain to prepare, even with my mango corer! And it has to be eaten at just the right time so it is sweet and juicy. When it is right, it is like nectar! Yum
    But for my favourite everyday fruit, it has to be banana and I always have one with me when I am out. When my kids didn’t want breakfast, I always insisted they took a banana with them. This morning my daughter was off to sit an important exam and my last words to her were ‘take a banana with you!’ I’m sure my grandkids will call me banana nana.

  7. I love bananas, but have a soft spot for mango when on holidays (buts its never as nice in Ireland, too long in transit).

  8. My favourite fruit is grapefruit. I love this with breakfast of a morning. NO sugar, just that lovely bitter taste. Mmmm!

  9. My favourite fruit is cherry!! I just love them. As a result I love cherry lip balms, candles, body lotion and anything else cherry flavoured/scented!!! Thanks xoxo

  10. I love most fruit – pineapple is a particular favourite and bananas are really handy if I need a boost after the gym! x

  11. Lychees are my favourite fruit. Unfortunately they are hard to get, but that makes me look forward to them even more!

  12. I love apples because there are so many different varieties – soft, crunchy, bitter, sharp, tangy, sweet…………there is an apple out there for everyone! My current faves are kanzi apples but it is so hard to get them

  13. I absolutely love cherries especailly straight off my tree you cant beat them.

  19. My favourite fruit has to be a Sharon fruit also know as a persimmon, they are so yummy and juicy, a very unusual texture but absolutely gorgeous! mmm

  20. I love Melons because they are so juicy and refreshing on a hot summers day! Though we’ve said goodbye to those for a while!

    1. apologies, I had a feeling that I’d already commented but couldn’t find my original comment, please delete this one as I can’t seem to find a delete button

  21. My most favorite fruit would be Oranges if I have to name one but I do love
    Strawberries, melons, pineapple, bananas not keen on apples though

  22. Has to be mango – the orangey yellow ones you get from Indian super markets, not the hard green things from the supermarkets that never ripen properly.

  23. Definately the simple little Apple! I’m an apple nut, There are so many different varieties and it’s the crisp ones that I find the best!

  24. I’m a bit of an odd one and don’t really like fruit. I really wish I did as it always looks so colourful and inviting, but it’s a texture thing for me. Fortunately my husband and children do love fruit, so I would love to win this for them. My kids adore strawberries and raspberries.

  25. Im into exotic fruits, i love mangos. I tend to drink more fruit juices then eat actual fruit, but given a choice, i always tend to pick something tropical

  26. I love bananas! my fiance laughs at me as he thinks Im rather strange as I eat them all the time & I also have banana with peanut butter & honey for dessert, which he thinks is absolutely gross!


  27. I just love fruit. My favourite often depends on the time of the year. I love English strawberries in the summertime. Other times of the year they have no taste. Raspberries are gorgeous. Bananas are great. Apples are fantastic. Melons, yum. I think that I could live on fruit, quite happily. Is there such a thing as a fruitarian?

    When I can get them I put cranberries in virtually all my savoury dishes!

  28. Ma favourite fruit is blackberries. I love this time of year when I can go out picking the blackberries. Unfortunately I eat most of them when picking so very few make it home.

  29. My favourite fruit has to be a toss up between a nectarine or a peach, or maybe cherries! lol x

  30. My favourite fruit is melon, honey dew is my fav favourite, but I love watermelon and galia too.

    It’s lovely with a drizzle of lime juice on and a few slices of cherries and strawberries on the side.

    Mouths watering as I type!

    thanks for a grea tcompetition and for making me hungry! HEHE.

  31. I love fresh pineapple, I even enjoy preparing it, it’s great that something natural can taste so sweet & delicious!
