How do you like your breakfast in the morning? 13 per cent of people living in the North East prefer a full English for breakfast according to a new poll.

The North East scored similarly to the East of England, who also prefer a full English breakfast.

The poll, conducted by Vouchercloud, was undertaken as part of ongoing research into Britons’ daily expenditure on food and drinks.

Chris Johnson, Head of Operations at, said: “The fact some people spend almost £100 a month on breakfast is madness; you can buy enough cereal to last months, if not a year, at that cost.

“Imagine if those people got up a little earlier each day and made themselves breakfast, what they could do with that extra £100 per month!

“Have a few social nights out, go out to dinner on more than one occasion – or one fancy occasion – or even save it up and have over £1,000 to play with at the end of the year.”

As many as 2318 Britons, aged 18 and over, were quizzed about their food and drink habits, with a particular focus on the expenditure that is incurred.

Initially all respondents were asked whether they have breakfast at home or on the go and 46 per cent said they have breakfast at home.

A further 31 per cent of respondents said they eat it on the go, while 23 per cent said they have it at work.

All respondents who stated they have breakfast either on the go or at work were asked whether they took it with them from home, or whether they purchased some while out and about, to which 69 per cent admitted they purchased breakfast once they had left the house.

The survey also found that half of Britons do not eat breakfast at home, and those who purchase breakfast instead of taking something from home typically spend £95.20 per month.

However, one in seven respondents admitted to regularly skipping breakfast.

Their reasons for this were being in a rush and not having time (29 per cent), oversleeping (23 per cent) and not being typically hungry in the morning (19 per cent).

All respondents were asked to state what their breakfast preference was, and the region of the UK which they were from  to determine any patterns.

Once all of the responses were collated, the top breakfast preference per region was revealed.

London prefer granola, while the South West and North West both prefer cereal.

Scottish people like to opt for porridge, Yorkshire and the Humberside prefer fruit, while toast is popular in the East Midlands.

Eggs Benedict is the preference in the South East, but in Northern Ireland, the West Midlands and Wales rolls are popular.

While the West Midlands and Wales prefer a bacon roll, Northern-Irelanders prefer a sausage roll for breakfast.
