It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and for children this is particularly important. Breakfast starts of the body’s metabolism and get the mind active ready to learn, the process of breaking the food down provides energy to the child helping them to concentrate and work more effectively.
It’s important not only that children have breakfast but also what they have for breakfast as some sugar-rich cereals can actually make children have sugar highs then lows having an effect on their behaviour. Study have shown that the best breakfast for children to have is something with slow release energy such as porridge oats or whole grain seeded bread that will give children energy evenly throughout the day until then next eat at lunchtime.
Many schools are trying to encourage pupils and parents to ensure that children have a good breakfast before coming to school with some even offering breakfast clubs before the school day starts to give children and busy parents the opportunity for their child to sit and have a healthy breakfast every day.
