The importance of breakfast

Getting children to eat breakfast is part of the morning challenge many parents face each day. Is it worth the struggle? Is breakfast important? In the area of children's nutrition, the answer is yes.

Surveys and results could be quoted confirming children who eat breakfast perform better at school, have improved school attendance, are better behaved, and more energetic and have better weight control.

Here are some easy and quick breakfast ideas: whole wheat toast with peanut butter and banana with a glass of milk; yoghurt with granola and fruit; cheese toast and calcium-fortified orange juice; oatmeal or cold cereal in low-fat milk with banana.
