Importance of healthy breakfast for kids
bidadafoods | February 13, 2017

Breakfast literally means – Breaking the fast – it provides the body and brain with fuel after an overnight fast. Without breakfast you are practically running on an empty fuel tank. While breakfast should be eaten within two hours of waking up, a nutritious and wholesome breakfast is a must to energize you during the day.

For children the importance of a healthy breakfast is paramount. With a long day ahead of them, without a balanced breakfast they feel lethargic and have short attention spans. Also, children who don’t eat a good breakfast tend to eat more junk food during the day — snacks that are high in fat and sugar and low in nutritional value.

Apart from providing us with energy, breakfast foods are good sources of important nutrients such as calcium, iron and B vitamins as well as protein and fibre. The body needs these essential nutrients and research shows that if these are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day. Nutritionist and Dietitian Sonia Narang decodes some of the essential everyday spices that can boost the metabolism and rejuvenate the mind and body.
