If she is on a special diet and you want to make a memorable breakfast for mum, it’s not as complicated as you may think. These days, we have many special foods and ingredients for those with specific dietary needs. Here are some ideas to keep in mind.

Gluten free

Some people have Celiac disease and others have non-Celiac gluten intolerance. There are also those who choose to follow a gluten free diet for other reasons. The good news is that there are many gluten free ingredients available. From gluten free bread to pasta and flour. This means that you can make a scrumptious breakfast for mum with all of her favourites and you don’t have to worry about upsetting her diet. In addition, you can also shop for a gluten free hamper that includes the very best and most delicious foods.


If mum has diabetes, it is very important that you provide her with foods that will not cause any sugar spikes. Just like gluten free products, there are also many diabetic ingredients on the market. You can still treat her to a delicious breakfast for mum without upsetting her sugar levels. There should be an isle or part of an isle in your local grocery store with diabetic products. Many types of fresh fruit are also safe in moderate quantities. If you want to play it safe, you can also shop for a diabetic gift hamper and treat mum to this fantastic surprise.

Low fat or low carb

Medical conditions and lifestyle choices can mean that mum is following a low fat or low carb diet. It’s good to remember that there are many low fat and low carb ingredients available. Before preparing any foods, you should always check the labels on the ingredients. If you are following a recipe, you should find the nutritional information included. Avoiding breads for low carb diets and avoiding saturated fats is important for low fat diets.

These are just a few ideas for a healthy breakfast for mum. Remember, try to keep her special Mother’s Day meal delicious and colourful. Now is the time to spoil her with flowers, cards and other gifts too.
