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. Red grapes are my favourite, I could easily eat a whole bunch myself

    This prize may actually get me eating breakfast – I find it so boring so don’t usually bother.


  3. Yum. My favourite fruit is… um… mango… or strawberries… or…

    OK. Nectarines.

    But, really, it’s impossible to choose.

  4. mine has to be ummm….raspberries, straight from the bush at the pick your own farm


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

  6. My favourite fruit is blackberries , could eat them all day long 🙂

  7. 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!

  8. The good old British apple is my favourite – especially now in ‘apple season’ support local 😉

    I’m sarahwalters99 on Twitter


  9. 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!

  10. 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.

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

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

  13. 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

  14. i like all fruit but if i have to choose it gotta be the humble banana mmmmmmmmmm

  15. I love bananas, tasty, low fat and filling…even comes in its own wrapper! @anywayup35 (twitter)

  16. Apple.
    always have 2 apples a day,stopped eating rubbish food & apples always hit the spot when hungry.

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

  18. Raspberries, can’t get enough of them and much healthier than reaching for a packet of crisps!

  19. I really love Pineapples, as a fruit on it’s own, in salads and on pizzas. 🙂

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

  21. 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

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

  44. 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.

  45. I love bananas – they are delicious on their own, banana butties are lovely too, not to forget banana splits – they’re a very versatile fruit! x @MySonsSpongeMad on Twitter

  46. 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

  47. My favourite fruits have got to be raspberries and blackberries so delicious.

    Twitter @buzylizzy1

  48. Mine has to be good old fashioned Granny Smith apples! please contact me by email in the event of winning

  49. 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!


  50. 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!

  51. 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.

  52. I love nectaries, sadly the have a very short season (you can buy in Autumn but they are not very good)

  53. Gotta be bananas… superfruits, so good after running, etc, they work miracles!

  55. So difficult to pick – am I allowed fruit salad as an answer? No? Then I’ll go with raspberries!

  56. 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!
