During my three-day food intake I learned about myself.

I’m learning that variety, balance, and moderation are the key to healthy nutrition. As I am learning what I should and should not eat I will like you to invite you to take a look at my food intake.

I read the article, "Skipping Breakfast is Very Bad for Health". Now I do agree with the title, to some extent breakfast I feel that breakfast is very important because it allows your metabolism and appetite to stay regulated. What I do not agree with is how the author is trying to suggest that not eating breakfast will cause individuals to smoke, drink more alcohol, and not exercise. The article also speaks on things like individuals will not be educated and less likely to get a good job. All these things were based on accusations not facts. Nothing was proven or demonstrated to show that this information was true. Going off of assumptions was only implied in this article. That is just like saying that if individuals start to eat breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day is a long standing saying that is believed by most, but is often misconstrued that anything for breakfast will work, which is wrong. Most sugary cereals that children love, are a terrible breakfast, contrary to what the hundreds of commercials try to imply. A good breakfast will incorporate all colors of the food pyramid and will be know as “brain foods” like fruits, nuts, and avocadoes. Breakfast should be something to wake you up in the morning, and give you energy for the first half of your day, not give you a sugar rush that will set you on course for a sugar induced crash
An Australian study reported that even twelve year olds were skipping breakfast (Shaw, 1998), which can have an effect on concentration, learning and school performance (Story, et al. 2002). In fact, Nicklas et al (1993) found that skipping breakfast decreases the total daily energy, vitamin and mineral intake, causing dietary inadequacy to be two to five times higher (Story, et al. 2002). A benefit of eating a well-balanced diet with the recommended number and size of meals throughout the day is the steady supply of energy it provides, helping to reduce fatigue (Finn, 2001). Cells in the body are able to produce energy more effectively when daily food consumption reaches optimum levels (Finn, 2001), and improved energy not only impacts sporting performance but academic performance as well. The results of a Canadian research (Florence, 2008) reiterate the beneficial effects of overall dietary adequacy and variety on academic performance. As a result of my consumption of a diverse selection of foods throughout the day, my energy levels increase, concentration improves, and I am likely to perform better academically. Therefore, there are many benefits in eating a nutritious and well-balanced
Dubois, Girard, Potvin Kent, Farmer, and Tatone-Tokuda (2008) reported that among 1549 children, with a mean age of 49 months, 10% ate breakfast on fewer than 7 days/week. This behavior was associated with a lower diet quality and concentrated energy intakes through higher protein intakes at lunch and the consumption of snacks higher in energy and carbohydrate in the afternoon and evening.

Breakfast has long been perpetuated to be the most important meal of the day. It provides the necessary energy that one needs to perform during the day.

Sometimes kids don’t have time to eat breakfast in the morning because, they may be late for the bus, they get up late and don’t pick up breakfast on the way to school or leaving out of the house and their parents don’t cook. When the kids get to school they are hungry but don’t want breakfast from school because it tastes horrible.
