Why Is Breakfast So Important?
Is it really true that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day"?
Breakfast is indeed a very important meal. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day.
In general, kids and teens who eat breakfast have more energy, do better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day. Without breakfast, people can get irritable, restless, and tired. So make time for breakfast — for you and your kids!
