Which restaurants are best for breakfast?

A new restaurant survey shows breakfast has become the go-to meal of choice for many Australian families, with a growing number opting to head to the canteen for their morning snack.

A new survey has found breakfast is now the go to meal of preference for many Australians and more families than ever before are opting to eat there for breakfast.

In 2015, Breakfast was the preferred meal for about 2.7 million Australians, according to data from the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS).

This year, it is up to 5.6 million Australians who say they want to eat breakfast, according the latest AIFS data.

The survey of over 600 Australians found breakfast has now become a common meal for many families, as well as a staple for many people who aren’t currently eating at home.

The latest survey by the AIFSS also found breakfast was popular among students and older Australians, with about a quarter of Australians aged 65 and over having breakfast.

In contrast, breakfast was less popular among young people and people with low incomes, the AifS data found.

It found breakfast consumption among the most financially disadvantaged group rose by 1.4 per cent in the year to March, compared to the year before, but the trend is also reflected across income levels.AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan said breakfast was a major mealtime staple for Australians.

“We know breakfast is important to many Australians, and a significant part of their daily meals, and the A$50 that is spent on breakfast is not enough to sustain a family,” Mr McLachlin said.

“It is important for young Australians to have a choice about when they start their day and how much they eat.”AFL CEO Gillon Maclachlan says breakfast is a popular mealtime option for AustraliansAFL Chief executive Gillian McLachland said the league would work with breakfast clubs to provide a range of options.

“There are a range, a variety of different options for breakfast,” she said.

“We’re going to work with the clubs to do our part to get them involved.” AAP/ABC
