Some eat breakfast, some don’t

Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day, but it can also feel like the most skippable meal of the day. 

Numerous studies conducted in the past have shown a correlation between eating breakfast and academic and behavioral outcomes. According to the Food Research and Action Center, being hungry can lead to lower academic performance and lower concentration levels, lower alertness, lower comprehension, lower memory and make learning more difficult.

Although the positive effects of breakfast are clear, it’s up to students to actually eat breakfast. According to Marie Darst and Elliot Sommerfeldt, it’s a mixed review of students who eat breakfast and those who don’t. 

Darst said, “I do eat breakfast. I normally have cereal because it’s quick, easy and it fills me up for the day of school work ahead.”

However, Sommerfeldt said the opposite. “I don’t usually have breakfast because I don’t have time to eat in the morning. When I do have breakfast, I usually just have some fruit or a granola bar.”
