copyright 2006 by Greg Landry, M.S.





Breakfast is important for people of all ages; however, it is most important for children and adolescents. Children who consume a healthy morning meal have better concentration, problem solving skills, and hand-eye coordination. They are also more alert, more creative, and less likely to miss school. With all of these possible benefits, it is important to choose the best breakfast. A good morning meal will consist of a variety of foods from the following food groups: fruit and vegetables, grains, dairy, and protein. It is important to pick one food from each of these four groups in order to create the most balanced breakfast.

From the food and vegetable group try to eat whole fruits or vegetables, 100% natural smoothies, or 100% juice without added sugar. As for grains, there are numerous options. Whole grain rolls, bagels, hot or cold whole grain cereal, and low fat bran muffins are just a few of the choices. Dairy foods also offer a plethora of choices. You can incorporate skim milk, numerous low fat yogurts, and numerous low fat cheeses into your daily diet. As far as protein goes, try incorporating hard boiled eggs, peanut butter, lean slices of meat and poultry, or slices of fish (salmon). All of the above food choices are easy to prepare and delicious. Combining these foods as a part of balanced breakfast can provide you with the concentration and strength necessary for a productive day.

This type of a well balanced breakfast is especially important for growing children. This way they can improve their alertness and productivity at school. Furthermore, you will be sending your child of for the day with essential vitamins and nutrients to help him/her fight the common bugs’ which often linger around school campuses. So if you have ever wondered whether breakfast is important, the answer is a definite yes!
