Importance of breakfast in children health

Breakfast is very important very important for children. Breakfast helps the children to concentrate on studies and gives energy for the whole day. Breakfast is the food of brain, so it is unavoidable for children who go to school. Children who eat breakfast will have a good mental performance than the children who don’t eat breakfast.

Foods that are rich in carbohydrate are said to be healthy breakfast for children. Milk, banana and whole grain would be a best choice for children’s breakfast.

But it is important to give them healthy snacks. Foods, cereal, smoothies, peanut butter, popcorn, baked sweet potatoes, fruit bars, a glass of milk, low fat cheese and apple slices would be nutritious and healthy for children.

Make your children to drink more water. They can take 6 to 8 glasses of water per day so that they will not suffer from dehydration. And brain is made up of 80% of water; it helps in children to develop their mental ability.  Other than water milk and fruit juices are good for them. Avoid fizzy drinks as they are low in nutrients but high in sugar.
