Why You Should Eat a Healthy Breakfast

· Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Breakfast provides
you with the energy and nutrients that lead to increased concentration in
the classroom.
· Studies show that breakfast can be important in maintaining a healthy
body weight.
· Hunger sets in long before it's time for lunch, but because it's not
convenient to eat properly, many people who have not eaten breakfast snack
on foods that are high in fat and sugar.
· People who skip breakfast are unlikely to make up their daily
requirement for some vitamins and minerals that a simple breakfast would
have provided.
· Breakfast provides energy for the activities during the morning and
helps to prevent that mid-morning slump.


Tips on Eating a Quick and Healthy Breakfast

· Pick 2-3 foods, including at least one from each of the following food
groups:
-bread and grain (i.e.cereal, toast, muffin)
-milk and milk product (i.e. low-fat yogurt, low-fat milk)
-fruit or vegetable group (i.e bananas, apples, carrots)
· Pick up portable breakfast items when at the grocery store. You should
buy foods like fruit, low-fat yogurt, whole grain breakfast bars, or
granola bars for those mornings when you have to eat breakfast on the go.
· Replace or accompany that morning cup of coffee with a glass of orange
juice or milk.
· Make an omelette! You can shorten preparation
