Do You Eat Breakfast Every Morning?
Are you a breakfast person? I personally love breakfast. Lately, I have been on an oatmeal kick–every breakfast meal is oatmeal. It’s just so good. Well, many say breakfast is the best meal of the day we can eat, right? Then, why do only 34 percent of adults eat breakfast?
According to a new survey by Kellogg, 54 percent of adults would like to eat breakfast, but, when it comes down to it, only 34 percent of people actually do.
In the press release for the Kellogg survey, a pediatrician and author of “Heading Home with Your Newborn and Food Fights” Dr. Laura Jana says breakfast is important because “after sleeping, we need to re-fuel our brains and bodies for the day. Without a healthy breakfast, we simply are not as likely to function at our best.”
The survey also finds that when children are younger, they are pretty good about eating breakfast, with 77 percent of them eating it. But, as children grow older, that high percentage goes down. When children get into middle school, 50 percent of them eat breakfast, and when they reach high school on 36 percent eat breakfast.
So, what do kids do in the morning instead of eat breakfast? According to the survey, they are “watching T.V., getting their homework done or getting ready for school.”
For all the results of the Kellogg survey, here’s the press release.
How about you? Are you are breakfast person?
