Healthy Breakfast = Happy Day
Children who eat breakfast are more likely to get fiber, calcium, and other important nutrients. They also tend to keep their weight under control, have lower blood cholesterol levels and fewer absences from school. Studies have shown that children who eat breakfast on a daily basis have higher test scores, retain information better, and focus more than those who do not. The reason for this is that our brains require food for fuel, just as our muscles do. While our muscles can use stored energy from food we ate yesterday, our brain prefers energy from food we have eaten recently.
