“Eat your breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day.”
You heard that motto every day as a kid from a parent walking by with a coffee cup in one hand and a limp newspaper in the other. And now that it is your turn, sipping on a pre-made smoothie while you scroll through your morning updates, it is important that you listen to your own advice for you and your family’s sake.
The Most Important Meal of the Day
Breakfast is a hard habit to get into, even if you do dream of being served a meal like the ones the families on tv always have. Breakfast is a low-priority meal for many Americans. We are still waking up as we run out the door each day. We grab coffee on the way to work.
Adding breakfast to your morning routine may seem too time-consuming with not enough rewards for doing so, but eating breakfast has many benefits. You start the day with the fuel you need and a satiated belly–keeping you from snacking on the chocolate in your desk drawer until lunchtime.
Now with the kids heading back to school, it’s important you and your loved ones make the most of each day by choosing a breakfast served with real milk. When children eat a healthy breakfast, they have better concentration and the fuel they need to be their creative and active selves. Further, milk helps keep our immune systems healthy, which will help everyone when mild colds and 24-hour bugs appear.
To get the most of it, make breakfast a fun task with tasty options. To start the day off right, make a breakfast sandwich or even a breakfast pizza using an English muffin topped with egg and cheese. For the sweet tooth, prepare a parfait with yogurt, granola, and fruit that is easy to take on the go. And the occasional bowl of cereal and fruit with milk poured over it is a classic choice. Whatever you choose, serve it up with an 8-ounce serving of milk.
