While all sorts of nutrition fads come and go, one thing will never change: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Children who eat breakfast perform and behave better in school (because theyre not hungry and cranky), consume more calcium, fiber and vitamins than those who skip breakfast, and tend to eat less fat and cholesterol than their friends who miss this valuable meal. Breakfast eaters tend to have healthier body weights, and this is true for adult men, women and children in all age groups. Of course, were all focused on the quality of our childrens school lunches right now, but those menus will take time to change. One simple thing you can do to instantly improve your childs health is to put breakfast on the table (or in his hands as he races out the door). Sound like a challenge? Its not, with a little planning and some creativity.
