Almost everyone of us must have heard the saying, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Still, not many have taken it seriously and made breakfast a part of their daily diet. Just like adults, skipping breakfast has also become a practice among school going children and as parents and caregivers, it is our responsibility to provide them with a healthy breakfast. Many students refuse to eat breakfast before going to school for several reasons, like, lack of time, not feeling hungry, etc. However, they do not realize that not eating breakfast actually hampers their health and can cause various learning problems. To avoid such problems, it is necessary that students develop the habit of eating breakfast daily. Rather than forcing children to eat breakfast, it is better if we make them understand the importance of breakfast for students and the ways it will benefit them.
