Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Rightly so, as it marks the start of the day where you can get loaded with all the important nutrients required for the healthy functioning of the body.
In spite of its importance, breakfast is the most ignored meal by the people today. Considering the fast-paced lifestyle of the recent times, kids and teenagers are quick to skip breakfast.
However, it is not a very good idea to give the most important meal a miss and flouncing-off to get started with your day. Study has time and again emphasized on how your body reacts when you do not have regular breakfast.
As the name suggests, breakfast is about breaking your fast of nearly twelve hours. Your body and brain receives its first dose of nutrition, something that is much required. This should include all the important vitamin supplements and glucose that is required for the healthy functioning of brain.
Glucose is also required to fuel the physical demands of the body through out the day. Contrary to the popular belief, skipping breakfast in facts acts as a factor in weight-gain. Missing breakfast is a bad idea, as you tend to eat or over-eat through out the day in-order to compensate the required calories. Â This eventually leads to obesity and other eating-disorders resulting in bad health.
The prior reason for missing-out on breakfast is perhaps the ‘sad menu’. Do you find yourself asking ‘What do I have for breakfast’, too often? Well, simple food items can perk up your daily breakfast. Cereals, oat-meal and fruit make best of breakfast.
Stock-up your fridge with yogurt, milk and juice for the entire week and you will never go with out breakfast. The other mistake you should avoid is having breakfast at a ‘drive-in’. The food served at these places is often greasy and un-hygienic, making the dinner left-over’s a better option.
‘Have breakfast like a king’ and rightly so, as studies show that your child’s performance is directly related to it. Kids who have a healthy breakfast do better in their school performance.
A good breakfast helps keep your mind alert and increases concentration, making your day success. So, don’t just grab an apple on your way out this morning, rather have a delicious breakfast and enjoy the rest of your day.
