Breakfast is the meal that breaks the fast from the night before. Some people claim they’re not hungry in the morning, or that they lack time at this hour to eat, yet others never skip this meal. Truth be told, the winner of the breakfast debate is to eat breakfast.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because of its many benefits. To be clear, the type of breakfast being referred to is one that is nutritionally complete, not donuts, muffins, bagels or waffles covered in syrup. Starting the day with protein and complex carbohydrates has been linked to weight control, better performance mentally and physically, longer lasting energy, and better concentration - which is good for everyone, especially children in the classroom.
