Description:
ating breakfast is considered to be an important part of a balanced diet and provides a great start to the day. Breakfast eaters generally have higher micronutrient intakes1 and tend to be less overweight2 than breakfast skippers. Children and adolescents who regularly eat breakfast also tend to have a lower body mass index than those who don’t, and have a reduced risk of becoming overweight or obese.3,4 Surveys, however, conclude that many children skip breakfast5 and, considering the fact that eating breakfast is thought to improve concentration and learning,6 the promotion of regularly eating breakfast, especially on school days should stay high on the agenda.
