Do you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? A good breakfast provides the nutrients that people need to start their day off right.
Studies show that children who eat a good breakfast do better in school than children who do not.
Studies also show a link between participation in the School Breakfast Program and improved academic performance and psycho – social behaviour.
Children who eat a good breakfast tend to perform better in school, and have a better attendance and decreased hyperactivity. Children who don’t eat breakfast tend to perform not as well, and also tend to have behaviour problems such as fighting, stealing, and not listening to their teachers (Dr. Ronald Kleinman, Harvard Medical School).
Some school provides breakfast program by giving nutritious meal to children who might otherwise not eat breakfast, and is designed to provide children with one-fourth of their daily nutrients. This program offers fruit, cold cereal and milk daily
If your child eats breakfast at home, choose a breakfast with milk, fruit and cereal(grain product). These three foods can provide for a good breakfast. Eating a healthy breakfast does not need to take a lot of time.
