Why is a healthy breakfast so important?

We've all heard that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day". But how many of us know why it's so important? 

'Breakfast' literally means to 'break the fast' that occurs overnight. After approximately 12 hours without fuel your tank (body) needs a refill!

We've got 7 reasons why you need to start your day with a healthy and nutritious breakfast ✅

#1 FUEL YOUR BODY WITH ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS 🌱

Kick-start your day with much needed nutrients! As well as providing energy (calories), a healthy breakfast can give you the nutritional boost your body needs, including fibre, vitamins and minerals.

#2 TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR WEIGHT 

Skipping or eating a breakfast that lacks essential nutrients can make you more likely to reach for unhealthy, high-calorie foods later on. In fact, research shows that individuals who consume a good quality breakfast tend to have a healthier daily food pattern than those who don't. 

#3 BUILD AND MAINTAIN MUSCLE 💪🏼

Protein contributes to the maintenance and growth in muscle mass, and our body relies on the protein in our diet to help us do this. 

#4 HEALTHY SKIN 

Beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within. Drinking water and enjoying a healthy breakfast will feed your skin with essential nutrients.

#5 BOOST YOUR METABOLISM

Eating a healthy morning meal and smaller portions more often throughout the day will help to balance your energy and enable your body to perform at its best.

#6 POWER YOUR BRAIN 🧠

Improved mental performance, concentration and mood - three more reasons to enjoy a morning meal! Without breakfast, you may struggle to focus and are more likely to be irritable and tired. No one likes a Moody Margaret 🤷🏽‍♀️

#7 ENERGY LIFT 😄

Breakfast literally means to 'break the fast' and helps to top up the energy stores that your body has used overnight to repair and renew. Vitamins and minerals also contribute to the reduction of fatigue.
