Eating a healthy breakfast can;

Enhance academic performance

A research suggests that students who eat breakfast are twice sharper than those that skip. While the result may not be instant, it encourages students to purpose for this meal.

Offers energy

Blood sugar levels usually drop at night during sleep. That implies less sugar, which indicates less energy when we wake up. It is why I usually tell my kids to fill up the lost energy as early as possible after waking up to re-energize with breakfast. It helps start off the day on a high note.

Help eat better and healthier

I teach my clients to avoid skipping breakfast in the name of losing weight because researchers suggests that it can worsen your goal by increasing cravings for food. Eating breakfast helps stay energized throughout the day, hence helping control your food consumption without a hurry for randomly filling up for energy.

I believe that nutrition science is a wonderful helper both for the preventive improvement of health and adjunctive therapy in treatment.
