People often question whether or not they should take the time to eat breakfast. However, regularly eating breakfast leads to healthier eating habits.

According to a study completed by The Dairy Research Institute, those who skip breakfast consume 40 percent more sweets, 55 percent more soft drinks, 45 percent fewer vegetables and 30 percent less fruit than people who eat breakfast.

Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? It is likely to be the most important meal of your day. However, it really depends on your personal health goals.

Our wellness team hopes you will eat breakfast more frequently throughout the week. If you already eat breakfast 3 to 4 times a week, then we encourage you to try eating every day.  Try the following breakfast foods to start:

  • Instant oatmeal with raisins
  • Whole wheat toast & jelly
  • Yogurt parfait with fresh fruit and nuts on top
  • Fruit smoothie
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Whole grain bagel with reduced fat cream cheese
  • Homemade granola bars
  • Blueberry muffins (no butter)
