Eat Breakfast Like a King

I've heard it said that you should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen, and dinner like a pauper. Whether this is true or not, research shows that breakfast is the most important meal.

Often, they could not concentrate on their studies and certainly were not doing their best in school.

Breakfast doesn't have to be a big extravagant event. Something simple will do. Whole grain cereal, low-fat milk, and orange juice. A piece of whole grain toast with peanut butter and banana. Even leftover pizza from the night before will do, just add a piece of fruit. Try to include a lean protein, a complex carbohydrate, and a healthy fat.
