Hanekom is one of the dieticians with the Futurelife Change Campaign, which is aimed at getting South Africans to think about what they have for breakfast.

She describes a good breakfast as a meal that has a low Glycaemic Index (GI).

Low GI food would be the one that releases the sugar slowly into your bloodstream and gives you sustained energy for the longest time, therefore keeping you fuller for longer.
