Studies show that kids who eat a good breakfast come to school ready to learn. Here's why.
When kids wake up in the morning, it's been about 12 hours since their last meal. Their bodies have used up the food energy from dinner.
If they don't eat again until lunch, it will be nearly six more hours before any food energy gets into their system. No wonder they often can't concentrate in school.
Of course, there isn't always time for a sit-down breakfast. Keep some foods, like yogurt, toast with peanut butter, or muffins, that kids can eat quickly. That way, everyone in your family can start the day with the energy they need to be a winner.
