British families are shunning cereal and are instead opting for eggs for a more quick and healthy breakfast according to new research.

In a report commissioned by the British Egg Industry Council it was revealed egg consumption at breakfast is up by 18 per cent over the past two years while sales of cereal have fallen by around £140m in the last year.

Not only are eggs delicious and incredibly versatile, they are an extremely healthy choice too, being full of protein, low in calories and full of vitamins.

Andrew Joret, chairman of the British Egg Industry Council, said: “The huge growth in egg sales over the past two or three years has been driven by people at both ends of the age spectrum.

"Younger people are eating significantly more eggs than previously and older people, always a key group, are also increasing consumption.

"Our research shows that people see eggs as the basis for a healthy breakfast, particularly if they are concerned about sugar intake.”

Below, we have recipe suggestions which include sweet-potato mash with bacon lardons, fried egg and parsley pesto, a hearty bacon and eggs tart, or the perfect shakshuka. Or how about kale with chorizo and eggs or eggs with greens, feta and chilli?
