Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes there just isn’t time in the morning to make a nutritionally balanced meal. Also, there are many food that are considered healthy, but they do not constitute a meal. Having fruit for breakfast, as an example. It may be healthy, but it is not balanced and, therefore, not an ideal breakfast either.
The reality is that 48% of the population skips breakfast and 47% has mainly sugary based breakfast? No wonder obesity is such a problem where over 50% of the population in the U.K. is overweight, and problem is spread worldwide. Research also shows that what we have for breakfast plays a huge part how the rest of the day is going to work out as unstable blood sugar levels will cause us to over eat or reach for more unhealthy carbs (read sugar) for quick energy, which is a bad scenario for managing weight and energy levels.
