Is breakfast really  the most important meal of the day?

 

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

 

Some people choose to skip breakfast as a means to lose weight. It’s that correct?

NO,  skipping it actually makes people more likely to snack throughout the day and eat a larger meal at lunch and dinner. As a result, it may cause weight gain by making them eat excessively later in the day.  High-fibre, carbohydrate-rich breakfasts help kids feel full longer thus they may snack less.

Breakfast helps improve mental performance and concentration during morning activities. It’s that true?

YES  Children who skip the first meal will be more sluggish, less attentive, and have less energy to carry out their morning tasks. Studies show that breakfast eaters perform much better in their school work and show extra energy in sports and other physical activities. Besides assuring optimal development and growth, positive effects on alertness, attention, performance on standardized achievement tests, and other skills important for academic success are enhanced for those who eat breakfast on a daily basis.

Are fruit and vegetables good sources of vitamins and minerals?

YES Fruit and vegetables are good sources of vitamins and minerals so try to include a portion of your daily five at breakfast, whether that be a banana or glass of fruit juice.

For our waistline is important an healthy breakfast?

YES Breakfast can be good for waistline too, research shows those who eat breakfast are less likely to be overweight and more likely to be within their ideal weight range compared with breakfast skippers.  If you skip breakfast, you’re more likely to reach for high sugar and fatty snacks mid-morning.

Our body needs of essential nutrients for the breakfast?

Yes Apart from providing us with energy, breakfast foods are good sources of important nutrients such as calcium, iron and B vitamins as well as protein and fibre.  The body needs these essential nutrients and research shows that if these are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day.

 

Breakfast provides many benefits to our health and wellbeing

 

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!Without breakfast you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the car with no petrol!

Also restores glucose levels, an essential carbohydrate that is needed for the brain to function.  Many studies have shown how eating breakfast can improve memory and concentration levels and it can also make us happier as it can improve mood and lower stress levels.  In studies amongst children, breakfast can improve attainment, behaviour and has been linked to improved grades.  Just like any other organ in the body, the brain needs energy to work at it’s best

Nutritionists advise that breakfast should be eaten within two hours of waking and it should provide calories in the range of 20-35% of your guideline daily allowance (GDA).

 

So, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day!
