Significance of Healthy Breakfast for Family




Healthy breakfast at the beginning of the day is a must to make your and your family’s day wonderful. It is very necessary to have healthy and stomach filling breakfast when we start our day. Read on to find more about the importance of having healthy breakfast regularly.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It has to be healthy and nutritious as the whole day is based on the nutrition it provides. People of all age stay busy for the first part of the day and so breakfast is very important. Most often people do not pay attention to breakfast and eat light and fast as they have to rush for their office, school or college.

On the other hand dinner is said to be light yet healthy. But most often people prefer eating a heavy dinner as at the end of the day they wish to eat whatever they wish to as they are relaxed by then. Most often, due to this people do not feel hungry the next morning and the cycle goes on.


Importance of Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast helps you start the day with energy and vigour. No matter whether you are an athlete, a student or a busy corporate executive, healthy, timely and nutritious breakfast is the most important thing. It will help you concentrate well and will increase your work efficiency also.

Skipping breakfast is very dangerous and the worst thing. This leads to various diseases and this habit can badly smash up your health. Body needs food in the morning because it has been under fast for last 10 – 12 hours. Refueling of the body is essential because it needs food and energy for the entire day’s work.

There are some misconceptions that prevail in many people’s mind. Many believe that skipping breakfast will make them lose weight or thinner. This is absolutely wrong and even if you are on a weight loss program, you need to have timely and nutritious breakfast. If you start your day without breakfast, you will feel lethargic and fatigued very fast. Not only this, your metabolic rate will decrease and your target of weight loss will not be received.


What is Healthy Breakfast?

Healthy breakfast is ideal when it includes protein, complex carbohydrates and lots of fiber. These are the sources of energy and give nutrition and fuel to the body to perform mental and physical activities. When an ideal breakfast is taken, it gives your day a kick start and helps you remain energetic throughout the day too.


Healthy Breakfast Picks

  • Fresh fruits
  • Vegetables and nuts
  • Low fat milk
  • Low fat yogurt
  • Eggs
  • Juice
  • Oatmeal
  • Whole grain bread or cookies
  • Smoothie

Your body needs lot of nutrition and so you need a healthy breakfast as the first meal of the day. You must avoid fast food and junk food during that time. Also fried food items should be avoided because they make you feel hungry very soon and you reach out for snacks before the time of your meal. This is unhealthy and is not good for even children too.

If you are able to take healthy breakfast daily your body will get the necessary vitamins and minerals. This will help your body work properly. Healthy breakfast will also help you manage your health in general.

You should try to encourage children to get used to this way of living from the very beginning. Try to make breakfast tasty and take care of the nutrition also. If you are able to get this habit into your children, they will get the benefit throughout their life.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it should be wholesome and healthy. It also should be the heaviest meal of the day.
