Default Is Breakfast really the most important meal of the Day?

I got this from my Culture of Foods Class. Apparently Breakfast is not the most important meal of the Day. German professors say Lunch is. Now I started to think well come on. This is just to get our brains fired up and argue over nothing but the valid point in the argument is our very own Food pyramid. The food pyramids largest portion servings of food is whole grain, bread etc etc And guess what the U.S makes and own more of…grain, whole wheats etc. So it makes sense to eat more of what the U.S produces. I cant really dig into to the german side of it as we didn’t cover to much but the US part makes perfect sense

Your post is very confusing. That said, my favorite meal is breakfast at any time of day. Biscuits and Gravy, Eggs and Hashbrowns, Pancakes and Bacon, I love it all.

A healthy breakfast refuels your body and replenishes your blood sugar (glucose), giving you the energy necessary to start a new day. In addition, a growing body of evidence indicates that breakfast is good for both your physical and mental health. Studies show that people who eat breakfast — especially a healthy breakfast — are more likely to:

* Consume more vitamins and minerals and less fat and cholesterol during the day. While the reason is unclear, one study claims that increasing daily eating frequency is associated with consuming more favorable nutrients and fewer less favorable nutrients, such as dietary cholesterol.
* Have better concentration and be more productive throughout the morning. Researchers believe this is due to replenishing glucose, the brain's main energy source.
* Control their weight. There are several theories behind the association between eating breakfast and controlling weight. Researchers speculate that eating breakfast may reduce hunger later in the day, or that it may cause eaters to choose less-dense foods at later meals. Eating breakfast regularly may simply be an indicator of someone who adopts a low-calorie, low-fat diet.
* Have more strength and endurance. People who eat breakfast — and thus have higher energy levels — may engage in more physical activity than may people who don't eat breakfast.
* Have lower cholesterol, which reduces the risk of heart disease. Research has shown that people who eat breakfast consume less dietary cholesterol than do people who don't eat breakfast.

While eating breakfast is important for all ages, breakfast is especially important for children and adolescents. According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast are more likely to have better concentration, problem-solving skills and eye-hand coordination. They may also be more alert and creative, and less likely to miss days of school.

A healthy breakfast should consist of a variety of foods. To make a healthy breakfast each day, choose one item from at least three of the following four food groups:

* Fruits and vegetables. Consider fresh, whole fruits and vegetables, fruit or vegetable smoothies, or 100 percent juice without added sugar.
* Grains. Choose whole-grain rolls, bagels, hot or cold whole-grain cereals, or low-fat bran muffins.
* Dairy. Consider skim milk, low-fat yogurt cups or low-fat cheeses, such as cottage and natural cheeses.
* Protein. Choose hard-boiled eggs, peanut butter, lean slices of meat and poultry, or fish, such as water-packed tuna or slices of salmon.


BREAKFAST THE MOST IMPORTANT!! NOW EAT YOUR OATS!!

Its not breakfast as in toast, eggs, potatoes.... Its the time. It jumpstarts your metabolism and gives you energy for the day. And yeah... so many people don't eat it, if I didn't I would be half dead by lunch.... I dont see why kids need persuasion.

That's clearly because if they're up early enough to eat breakfast, they're gettin ready for school and what not. If you're gonna skip, your ass is sleepin in, and not gettin up till about lunch time.

Although I used to skip my first class at least once (maybe it was at least twice) a week and go get breakfast, but that doesn't count as missing days of school, cuz I'd go in for the rest of the day.

And, I never eat breakfast. It's too damn early.

eat a good healthy breakfast and that really gives you energy to last the entire day. This way you wont eat too much at lunch and dinner and get fat. Also, you get your metabolism going so end up losing weight when you eat less/healthy the rest of the day.
