Kick Start your Day with Right Breakfast Options

To feel healthy and energetic for the entire day, it is important to fuel up yourself with breakfast. The most important thing to do is start the day right. Eating right should be the right agenda.

“Jump-starting” the day with right breakfast will offer you the best benefits. This is important for children, teens and adults.

A day without breakfast is like starting your car without fuel.

Breakfast means just what it says: “breaking an overnight fast”. It is the first chance the body has to refuel its glucose levels, also known as blood sugar, after 8-12 hours without a meal or snack. Glucose is the main energy source for brain and also helps to fuel muscles for physical activity throughout the day.

How to get it right?

Enhanced Nutrition

A good breakfast is important to prepare your body for the rest of the day. The eating pattern stimulates metabolism of the body and enhances energy. An ideal breakfast consists of the following:

Cereals

Fruits

Milk

Yogurt

The above listed ailments contribute to adequate intake of calcium, carbohydrates, fibre protein, vitamins, and essential minerals to your diet. According to experts, about 25 per cent of the daily nutrition can be obtained through the first meal of the day; breakfast. Those who miss breakfast aren’t able to make up for these nutrients later during the day.

Attention & Alertness

Starting the day hungry keeps your body in a fasting state. This makes it really difficult to concentrate. Breakfast skippers usually feel tired easily; get restless or irritable in the morning. Breakfast eaters are good performers.

Healthy Weight

Those who skip breakfast are not able to maintain healthy weight. On the other hand those who have it (high fibre and protein rich foods) feel full for longer. This keeps them from snacking on high fat, high sugar snacks during the day.

Boosts Immunity

Breakfast eaters get very high intake of key vitamins and minerals. Hence, they are less likely to suffer from colds. They also have lower blood cholesterol levels.
