(Williamsville, NY) – It’s no secret that eating breakfast kick-starts your metabolism and gives you the energy you need to tackle the day, but still a survey polling 2,000 American’s found that the average person eats breakfast just three times a week while 13% rarely, if ever, eat breakfast.* With breakfast being touted as the most important meal of the day, citing better memory, health, concentration, and lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and the decreased chance of getting heart disease, diabetes, and being overweight, still some shy away from this important meal. And these statistics don’t just pertain to adults. As we’re gearing up for the back to school season it’s even more important that our children engage in breakfast before heading off to a busy day of learning. It’s noted that children who skip breakfast can’t focus, have trouble with schoolwork, and are irritable. A recent study showed that kids who ate breakfast had higher test scores than those who didn’t and noted that teenagers who ate breakfast every day had a lower body mass index (BMI) -- a measure of body fat based on height and weight -- than teens who never ate the meal or who sometimes did. ** Having healthy options available for your family before they head out the door is something Tops Friendly Markets always has on hand and as we head into our Breakfast Sale we encourage you to start meal planning and starting a healthy routine with your family.
