We were taught that the day of an important test- you need sleep and to eat a healthy breakfast. Do students of Waubonsie Valley believe in this theory?
In proving our hypothesis of, if students eat breakfast, than they will receive good grades, we developed a survey in asking such questions to figure out about eating habits of high school students before school. Our group started out in developing a survey, based on our topic, and handed out in a convenient sample. 84 surveys were taken, and collected, to further receive interesting stats based on the questions answered by the students.

This meant that the highest numbers were both the highest answer on the lykert scale, and the lowest. And the average likeliness to eat during the week was 3.02 times during the week. With these numbers being so high, we found out that the reason that students do not eat breakfast during the week, do not give themselves time during the morning to even eat breakfast.
