More Good News about Breakfast

separator A review in the May issue of The Journal of the American Dietetic Association of 47 nutrition studies has concluded that children and adolescents who ate breakfast:

  • Had better mental function than kids who didn’t eat breakfast
  • Had better school attendance records
  • Were less likely to be overweight

Researchers theorize that eating breakfast may be helpful to mental performance simply because kids who aren’t hungry are better able to focus on classroom work. Another theory is that eating after many hours of fasting may cause metabolic changes in neurotransmitter concentrations. 

Whatever the reason, breakfast is a meal that every kid should be eating before going to school.
