Eat Breakfast

Numerous studies done over the past 20 years have shown that eating a healthy breakfast can improve memory, concentration, creativity, problem solving, and mood. A good breakfast can help you perform better at school, and helps you reach and maintain a healthy weight too.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

·         Aim for a breakfast that includes at least three of the five main food groups. Combinations like eggs, whole-grain toast, and milk; or cereal, milk, and an apple.

·         Choose whole-grain bread, cereal, or oatmeal to start your day. 

·         Choose low-fat dairy options, or fortified soy milk if you're lactose intolerant. 

·         Look for cold cereal brands that have no trans-fat, little or no added sugar, and list a whole grain as a first ingredient. 

·         Top your cereal with fruits like bananas, berries, or peaches. 

·         Mix fruit and granola into low-fat yogurt.

·         Pack breakfast if you're running late, like fruit, yogurt, whole grain bagel, or hard-boiled egg. 

·        Avoid pastries and sugary cereals; the energy they give won't last long.
