Importance of Breakfast


Blog By: Aishwarya Ghumekar


One fine morning I had a conversation with my mother about how I hated eating heavy breakfast early at 7 A.m. before leaving for College.

Eating a large amount of food so early is a difficult task when you aren’t used to it much.But I must say breakfast is a essential part of our daily diet.Breakfast provides the body and brain with fuel after an overnight fast that’s where its name originates, breaking the fast! Without breakfast you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the car with no petrol!

Nutritionist’s advice: breakfast should be eaten within two hours of waking up. Healthy breakfast should provide calories in the range of 20-35% of your guideline daily allowance (GDA). Breakfast is an excellent occasion to eat together as a family when possible. Establishing good breakfast habits in childhood and maintaining them throughout adolescence may be an important factor in reducing the prevalence of breakfast skipping and developing good eating habits that last a lifetime.

So, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day!
