When you wake up in the morning your body has been fasting for as many as 12 – 15 hours. It needs fuel in order to work at peak efficiency. It is very important then to break the fast  with a good balanced breakfast. It should be the biggest meal of the day.

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT THE EFFECTS OF A SKIPPED BREAKFAST ARE:

  • A short attention span
  • Lack of alertness
  • Longer reaction time
  • Increased tremor
  • Low blood sugar
  • Decreased work productivity

IN SCHOOL CHILDREN:

  • More social and emotional problems
  • Poorer grades
