Breakfast = first meal of the day

The word “Breakfast” means breaking the fast.

Breakfast provides the body and brain with fuel after an overnight fast - that's where its name originates, breaking the fast! Without breakfast, you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the car with no petrol!

Why Breakfast is important:

  1. Helps our bodies to wake up in the morning;
  2. Provides us with energy;
  3. Stops us feeling hungry before lunch, to prevent us from unhealthy snacking;
  4. Helps us to concentrate at school or work;
  5. Stops us feeling tired and moody;
  6. Can help us maintain a healthy weight. (Prevents you from over-eating later in the day)
  7. Better memory
