Beginning with Breakfast

Beginning with Breakfast Picture

“Let us watch well our beginnings, and results will manage themselves.” – Alexander Clark (1834-1879)

Good morning! Time for breakfast, often called the most important meal of the day.

Why? Because it breaks the overnight fasting period, replenishes your glucose supply and provides essential nutrients necessary to keep energy levels up all through the day.

Eating a healthy breakfast is one of the best ways we can start our day. The American Dietetic Association (ADA) reports that for children, breakfast can enhance alertness, attention, and performance on standardized achievement tests. The ADA also says that eating breakfast makes a difference in people’s overall weight. Breakfast eaters take in more vitamins and minerals, and less fat in cholesterol.

The American Heart Association agrees. They have reported that people who eat breakfast are significantly less likely to be overweight compared with those who skip the morning meal.

So, no excuses! Make sure your breakfast includes at least one serving of fruit, and some high-fiber foods like cereals, toast or oatmeal. Think of it as the beginning of a happy and healthy day!
