Why you should join the breakfast club
Children and teens who eat a healthy breakfast are shown to have enhanced concentration and physical performance at school. For some children, consistently eating breakfast can even help with math grades!
For adults, enjoying a healthy, protein-rich breakfast limits overeating at the next meal, curbs cravings, and prevents unnecessary snacking, all helping to maintain energy levels and a healthy weight.
If you (or your kids) aren’t hungry first thing, pack a breakfast sandwich or jar of muesli to eat on the way to school or work.
