HAVING A HEALTHY BREAKFAST.Posted by: amazingkozi | Posted on: December 20, 2019
Breakfast is the first meal of the day; morning meal.
If you divide this compound word into two parts, you’ll see it’s made up of “break” and “fast.” To fast means to go without food. So “breakfast” means to break the fast you’ve been observing since you went to sleep the night before!
A healthy breakfast should consist of a variety of foods, for example, low-fat or fat free milk, whole grains, lean meats or meat alternates, and fruits and vegetables. Offering these menu items will help provide a variety of nutrients and keep students and ready to learn until lunchtime.
Basically, you want to eat every 2-3 hours. So, for example, you might have breakfast at 6am, snack at 9am, lunch at 12pm, snack at 3pm, dinner at 6pm and maybe a snack at 9pm, depending on your schedule. You want to fuel your body based on your activity level throughout the day.
Breakfast can include the following: eggs (scrambled, sunny side up, over easy, poached or an omelette), meat (bacon or sausages), toast with jam, jelly or butter, hash browns, pancakes, cereal, coffee, tea, orange juice or grapefruit juice.
- Sprouted Grain Cereals.

Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, helping you burn calories throughout the day. It also gives you the energy you need to get things done and helps you focus at work or at school. Those are just a few reasons why it’s the most important meal of the day.
