For adults with weight loss goals, breakfast is the single most important meal. When you consume healthy food within half an hour of waking up, it increases your metabolic rate (how fast you burn calories) and kick starts your body into gear, telling it what to expect the rest of the day. When you don’t receive early morning fuel, your body doesn’t process your next meal as quickly. Since it didn’t get food in the morning, it will try to hold onto the afternoon meal as long as possible — instead of burning it right away.Breakfast is an important meal in your child’s day as well. Studies show children who eat breakfast have more energy, perform better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day.
