It’s a brand-new day and you’re determined to make it a good one. By lunchtime however, you’re feeling weighed down, uncomfortable and bloated. By the evening, things still don’t seem to be moving and you start to worry that you might be constipated. What went wrong? More often than not, it’s because you didn’t start the day off right. Let’s imagine a different story…

Chapter 1:

The bright summer sun is streaming through your window. You get up, take a long stretch, and consider preparing yourself a little al fresco breakfast. Where do you want to go?

a) The garden -> Go to Chapter 2

b) A park bench -> Go to Chapter 3

Chapter 2:

The birds are chirping, and the flowers are blooming. Everything feels relaxing and calm. Now, what do you want to eat?

a) Store-bought cereal -> Go to Chapter 4

b) Fresh fruit -> Go to Chapter 5

Chapter 3:

Good choice! A stroll to the park will get your digestive system moving, which is a great way to avoid constipation later in the day. You sit down and make yourself comfortable. Now, what have you brought with you to eat?

a) A sugary cereal bar -> Go to Chapter 4

b) Fresh fruit -> Go to Chapter 5

Chapter 4:

Cereal isn’t a bad choice in the morning, but if you’re uncomfortable or constipated, there are some other options that your body will thank you for. Zespri™ Green kiwifruit is one of the best foods for breakfast. This ripe, high quality little fruit can help with digestive comfort, leaving you feeling lighter and happier as you go on with your day. So, what do you want to do now?

Chapter 5:

Excellent choice! Eating fresh fruits as part of your daily routine is a simple way to stay healthy and vibrant. Not only does Zespri™ Green kiwifruit taste amazing, but it is naturally high in dietary fibre, which can increase the frequency of bowel movements and reduce the sensation of bloating. Now you’ve chosen the right breakfast, you’ve set yourself up for day of happiness and positivity. Now what about the rest of the week? In the final chapter, we’ll introduce you to a delicious new kiwi recipe that you can try out for tomorrow’s breakfast.
