By Shriya Agarwal, Diet Counselor

We all might have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Numerous times we are told about how a good breakfast fuels the body and gets us ready for the day.

But, why this fuss over breakfast?

– Studies show that breakfast can be important in maintaining a healthy body weight

– Breakfast provides you with the energy and nutrients that lead to increased concentration

– People who have not eaten breakfast tend to snack on foods that are high in fat and sugar

– People who skip breakfast are unlikely to make up their daily requirement for some vitamins and minerals that a simple breakfast would have provided

– Breakfast provides energy for the activities during the morning and helps to prevent that mid-morning slump
