The right breakfast helps children to grow and develop their mind properly. It is extremely important because it compensates for the fact that children have had no food since the night before and it provides them with the energy they need to face the first part of the day. Not having breakfast can have a negative impact on a child’s performance and their ability to concentrate. Children should spend 15 to 20 minutes having breakfast in the morning and share the experience as a family, whenever possible.

Breakfast is a necessary meal for children of all ages but especially for growing children, since it should provide 25% of their daily energy. It is recommended that breakfast is divided into two sittings (one half first thing and the other mid-morning) to spread out the calorie intake and maintain a stable blood sugar level.
