Breakfast has often been labeled as the most important meal of the day, and that has lots of good reasoning behind it! Our friends at Harvest of the Season and Ag in the Classroom also know the importance of eating well to give your brain the power it needs to store and process all that new information students are learning every day at school.
Why would you want to eat breakfast every day before school or work?
- Breakfast provides a boost of energy to your body to get the day started! You wouldn’t start a road trip without putting gas in your car would you? Be sure to start your day with fuel for your body too!
- Fruits and vegetables can be important components of a balanced breakfast. Most middle school students in the United States don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, and breakfast provides a way to include more of these foods in their diet.
- It gets our bodies going, and helps our digestive system wake up for the day to move the nutrients from what we eat into our cells for our body to use.
