The Most Important Meal of the Day!
What's the point of breakfast? I don't even get hungry 'til lunch time anyway...
Why eat breakfast? One reason is that eating a healthy breakfast is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Studies show that eating a healthy breakfast makes your diet more complete, giving your body the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it needs.
It will make you smarter too! According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat a healthy breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills, and hand-eye coordination. They also perform better on tests.
In addition, eating a healthy breakfast gives you more energy, strength and endurance to do fun physical activities like swimming, rock climbing and playing in the backyard. It will also make you a happier person throughout the day!
And finally, it helps you maintain a healthy weight. That's right. Eating a healthy breakfast, especially one with lots of protein, makes you less hungry during the day! Instead of having to snack all day because you skipped out on breakfast, you can enjoy running around and playing with friends without your tummy telling you to stop and feed it!
With all the good things that come with eating breakfast, who wouldn't eat it every day?!
