Go Gadget Free at breakfast time
When was the last time you looked at your phone? Are you on it right now?

Although we may not want to admit it, our society is becoming increasingly dependent on gadgets and gizmos in our daily lives. Gone are the days of dial-up internet and sending messages via carrier pigeon (thank goodness!). Our gadgets can do more than ever before, making it harder for us to put them away at breakfast time.
Let’s spend some time away from technology and reconnect with ourselves and our loved ones. Here are some ways we can ‘unplug’ and make the most of our breakfast time!
Get everyone involved and enjoy a tech-free breakfast
If one member of the family usually makes breakfast for everyone, why not get the whole gang involved and make it a group activity? This is an easy way to keep everyone busy and their hands away from the gadgets.
Chopping fruit and nuts, preparing breakfast oats and making tea and coffee are just some of the jobs that could be divided up between members of the family. This is a fun way to get everyone on board and means you could be enjoying your breakfast even faster! (Just keep an eye on any little ones when there’s hot water around.)
Share a story
In the rush of day-to-day life, it can be difficult to find the time to sit down and have a much-needed conversation with our loved ones.Around the breakfast table provides the perfect opportunity to make a point of having those conversations.
Why not ask your family to share a story at the breakfast table?
The kids could share what they’ve done at school recently or adults could talk about their work lives, it can be anything! It’s all about inviting conversation and talking face-to-face rather than face-to-screen.
Focus on what really matters
How many times have you entered a room and forgotten why you were even there? Sometimes we switch to auto-pilot and go about our daily lives without thinking. Distancing ourselves from gadget screens and technology can help us to clear our heads and focus on the important things in life.
In these times, where our daily lives are so busy, it’s important to find the time to sit with family and friends and enjoy a healthy breakfast together. Make your breakfast time even more awesome, with a quick and convenient yet tasty breakfast from the MOMA range.
