Suggestion:

Try to eat a fruit salad with breakfast at least once a week, varying the fruit as you wish.
Different combinations could include: a) oranges, raspberries and blueberries; apple, mango and pomegranate seeds; b) pears, blackberries and sliced peach or nectarine.
If you choose canned fruit, make sure that it is in natural fruit juice, not syrup.
If you prefer not to eat dairy products, choose soya-based yoghurt instead.
