Breakfast – The Most Important Meal of The Day

KNUE asked listeners what their favorite breakfast foods were, not surprisingly, there were varying answers. From a simple bowl of cereal to eggs Benedict. But I couldn’t help but notice how many people said they skip breakfast. That got me to thinking what Granny used to always say, ‘eat your breakfast, it’s the most important meal of the day.’ Is breakfast that important? If so, why? So I was on a mission to seek out the answers to this curious question.According to Web MD, skipping breakfast can be detrimental to your health. Not only yours, but your kids as well. Breakfast is a way that you recharge your body and brain, you will do better in everything you do. In fact, studies show that kids that skip breakfast tend to be absent or tardy more at school then kids that eat a regular breakfast.

For you folks trying to lose some weight by skipping breakfast in the hopes of saving a few calories, this is a no-no! Skipping breakfast has the exact opposite effect! Folks who skip breakfast usually put on more weight! Studies show that skipping breakfast can lead to obesity. Really???

Breakfast skippers tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal or nibble on high-calorie snacks to stave off hunger. Several studies suggest that people tend to accumulate more body fat when they eat fewer, larger meals than when they eat the same number of calories in smaller, more frequent meals.

Looks like Granny knew her breakfast knowledge! But a lot of folks don’t have time to make an elaborate breakfast every morning, right? Breakfast can be as simple as a bowl of cereal. So let’s all make Granny proud and eat our breakfast every morning so we’ll be prepared for the day ahead!

Thanks Granny!
