Week 2 Day 7 Activities By Ashleigh

Day 7 – It’s Time for Breakfast!
You made it safely to your hotel and feel fast asleep. You’ve now woken up and are ready to start your day. Before you start, however, you need to eat some breakfast. Imagine that you and your whanau have walked out of the hotel and into a restaurant across the street. At the restaurant you are offered a traditional breakfast meal. Scroll through the examples below to see a picture of what is commonly eaten in your country for breakfast.
Canada – Pancakes with maple syrup

Activity 1
Compare the picture of common breakfast foods in the country you’ve chosen with what you typically eat for breakfast here in New Zealand. I usually have a bowl of sultana bran cereal with trim milk and a cup of tea. What about you? On your blog, please tell us:
1. What you eat for breakfast. I mostly eat a bread and a cup of hot chocolate
2. What people in your chosen country eat for breakfast
Chebab (Wrap)

3.Which of the two breakfast options (your breakfast or the breakfast in the other country) you prefer. Why do you prefer it?
I want to eat a bread a cup of hot chocolate, because it is nice and easy, and also I didn't eat much at the morning I mostly eat much at afternoon.

Activity 2
Some of the most famous foods to come out of New Zealand include kiwifruit, lamb, whitebait, oysters, tuatua (shellfish), kumara, bacon and egg pie, hokey pokey ice cream, lolly cake, anzac biscuits and pavlova. Take a picture of you (or someone you know!) eating one of these famous ‘kiwi’ foods. Post the picture to your blog. Underneath the picture tell us what they are eating.

Bonus Activity
According to numerous researchers and fitness experts, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. They argue that people who eat breakfast will have more energy, be in a better mood, be able to think more clearly, do better at school and end up healthier than people who don’t eat breakfast.
Interestingly, not everyone agrees. In fact, some people believe that breakfast is not the most important meal of the day because people often eat too much food at breakfast time, gain weight and become unhealthy. They think that it is better to skip breakfast and eat a number of small meals later in the day.
After reading the arguments presented above, what do you think? Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? Why or why not?
I don't really agree, because most of the weekend I work up at 11:00 or 12:00 and I eat breakfast and luch together, and I am still healthy, every week day I eat a piece bread and a cup of hot chocolate, because I don't really fell hungry at the morning, and I still eat my morning tea and lunch normally, so that's why I don't really agree, and I think the purpose of eating breakfast is not making you hungry.
Bonus Activity = 8 points


  1. Hi Ashleigh,

    That piece of writing of yours for the bonus writing really convinced me that breakfast is not really important. And was that photo in taiwan because it really looks hot there. Also I agree with you that bread and hot chocolate is easier to make then a wrap. Wonderful work.

    From, Shanya

  2. Umm... Shanya,

    The photo up there is already taken long long ago, so... it is not in Taiwan!

  3. Hi Ashleigh! I think this post is some of your best work! I really liked your bonus answer. It just goes to show that everyone is different and has different ways of getting through the day!

    Kia kaha!
