Breakfast – Our Most Important Meal

Doctors and nutrition experts advice that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and for many good reasons.
Our body has not had any food for many hours. If we miss breakfast, that's unhealthy for everyone, but especially for growing children and adults doing physical and mental work. Everyone needs a healthy breakfast for that energy burst that makes our brain work properly.
Educators in impoverished areas like slums are familiar with all the symptoms of children who go to school without breakfast: short attention span, drowsiness, lack of energy and interest. Eating breakfast is what gets our metabolism going for the day, and helps our body regulate food intake -- and weight. When not starting our day off right with a healthy, filling breakfast, we are more likely to pick up unhealthy foods that we can get fast if we're in a state of semi-starvation.
Eating breakfast makes us less irritable; we need those blood glucose levels to even out, and breakfast is the meal for that particular job. Healthy blood glucose levels mean we won't be so cranky.
