It might sound cliché, but breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day.
We all know that these words of wisdom go by the waist side when it comes to events where free food is provided. And while that’s great and all, most breakfast events offer very little food options and still try to claim it as being ‘breakfast.’ We all know that a few pastries and coffee just don’t make the cut when it comes to enjoying a legitimate breakfast, which is why we’re here to present you with a few healthy alternatives. With that being said, you should consider finding an affordable local caterer who can handle all of your breakfast catering needs without breaking the bank.
Early Morning Breakfast Catering Ideas
See below for a list of our healthy breakfast catering ideas:
1. Fresh Fruits & Vegetables
Who doesn’t enjoy the sight of colorful fresh fruit salad and vegetables being served on a plate in the early morning? Fruits and vegetables are known to provide a good dose of healthy sugar and nutrition that our bodies need to keep us fueled throughout the remainder of the work day. Not only will they give your guests and/or employees the energy they need to be attentive throughout the event, but they’re also easy to serve. So go ahead and pair up your fruits and vegetables with wheat or pastries and save some money while doing it.
2. Tea & Coffee
As the host of your event, you don’t want to see your guests or employees yawning and/or scrolling through their Instagram feed in order to stay awake, do you? Your job is to help them stay focused, and that’s why serving tea or coffee is a must. Whether it’s caffeinated coffee, decaffeinated coffee, or a selection of tea, we got you covered!
3. Juices & Smoothies
While some people enjoy the traditional breakfast options such breakfast sandwiches, eggs, and other proteins, others might be looking for alternatives to keep them going. In that case, juices and smoothies are the perfect solutions. We provide an assortment of juices, but can also accommodate smoothies if requested.
As much as we all love having bagels in the morning, breakfast events require a little more consideration to people who are pickier about their diet. Croissants are a great alternative for guests or employees who are looking for a healthier option. Not only are they lighter and healthier than bagels, but they can be paired with tea, coffee, and an assortment of other items.
5. Topping Bar
Topping bars offer different types of yogurts and add-ons such as granola, seasonal berries, and other toppings. Topping bars not only give your employees variety but also give them the nutrients they need to be satisfied.
The fact that you serve breakfast to your guests and/or employees in the first place is a huge sign of respect. On the other hand, if you want to take it a step further, then we suggest that you consider the breakfast catering ideas presented above. This doesn’t mean that you have to spend a good chunk of money on arranging breakfast, but it does give you ideas that you can reference in the future for your upcoming breakfast catering event!
