Top 5: Reasons for Kids to Eat Breakfast

The morning rush to get the kiddos out the door can leave the need to have a nutritious breakfast as last on the list – but statistics show that children who eat a good meal before school may perform better in math and reading, says Dr. Debra Whaley of the Boys Town National Research Hospital.

Eating breakfast helps kids by:

  1. Eliminating hunger symptoms such as headache, fatigue, sleepiness and restlessness.
  2. Helping children think faster when doing school work and assists them in responding more clearly to teacher’s questions.
  3. Increasing mental performance
  4. Causing them to be calmer and less anxious.
  5. Helping  to keep their weight under control
