Eating a balanced breakfast every morning is one of the simplest things we can do to ensure our bodies and brains are receiving vital nutrients. Our first meal is responsible for fueling our body after a night of fasting, which is why breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whether it’s for children to concentrate at school or adults at work, breakfast is essential for all of us; at Breakfast Club of Canada we like to say that Breakfast is the first bite to success!
