    • Students will learn why breakfast is so important. We will try to have breakfast one day all together at school


    Eat your breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day!" Why are parents always saying that?

    Well, imagine you're a car. After a long night of sleeping, your fuel tank is empty. Breakfast is the fuel that gets you going so you can hit the road.

    What Should You Eat?

    Any breakfast is better than no breakfast, but try not to have doughnuts or pastries all the time. They're high in calories, sugar, and fat. They also don't contain the nutrients a kid really needs. And if you have a doughnut for breakfast, you won't feel full for long.

    Just like with other meals, try to eat a variety of foods, including:

    • fruit
    • vegetables
    • grains ( make at least half your grains whole grains)
    • protein (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dry beans, nuts, and seeds)
    • dairy products (low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese, and yogurt)

    Skipping Breakfast

    Some kids skip breakfast because they sleep too late or because they think it's a way to stay thin. But skipping breakfast doesn't help people maintain a healthy weight. In fact, someone who skips breakfast tends to eat more calories throughout the day.
