Can you tell me if this is ok for breakfast.
1/2 cup of yoghurt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup berries
1/2 large banana.
Is the banana enough as a starchy carb serve?
Or should I add oats?

The breakfast meal is 2 serves of protein and 1 serve of starchy or non- starchy carbs.
1/2 cup yoghurt = 1 protein serve
1/2 cup milk = 1/2 protein serve
1/2 cup berries = 1 non- starchy carb serve
1/2 banana = 1/2 starchy carb serve
Try increasing the milk to 1 cup to make up one serve, or alternatively, throw in a few almonds, or 1 tsp of peanut butter or LSA (ground linseed, sunflower seed and almonds). The addition of a little peanut butter or nuts can help you feel more satiated if this is what you were worried about.
For one serve of starchy or non- starchy carbs you could add either 1/2 a cup of berries or 1 banana, or do both! (1/4 cup berries and 1/2 a banana).
