(adapted from the HealthCorps curriculum)
There are many reasons to start your day off with breakfast. For one, breakfast provides you with a burst of energy in the morning and keeps up your energy throughout the day. It refuels your mind and body after a long night of sleep. Breakfast can give you the strength and endurance you need to perform your best for activities, such as sports. Depending on what is eaten, people who have a nutritious breakfast generally consume less fat/cholesterol and more vitamins/minerals than people who skip breakfast. Besides helping you keep your body healthy, breakfast is also important for a healthy mind. Eating breakfast can benefit your memory, concentration, and mood, which will help you perform better at work or in school!
Therefore, if you find yourself running out the door without eating breakfast, you may want to rethink your choice.
