When it comes to children it is very important to set up healthy eating habit at an early stage and for that having breakfast is important. With children getting less and less playtime and exercise these days it is all the more important for them to eat healthy. There is no point in sending them to school to learn stuff if they cannot concentrate and as parents we need to give them adequate support to enable them to learn. Hopefully by now you are at least thinking about having breakfast. I come from a tamil Brahmin family and Brahmin meal plan is quite well known because most of them have a big mid morning meal later in the afternoon a tiffin or lighter meal is consumed while dinner sometimes is liquid intake or fruits or some cereals if not curd rice.
A recent study done in the UK suggests that what we eat for breakfast has a bearing on how our bodies react to lunch. According to the study eating soon after waking up in the morning may help stabilize blood glucose levels later during the day. The small-scale study investigated metabolic changes in eight obese adults with type 2 diabetes. The subjects were divided into two groups--one group had breakfast soon after waking up in the morning and the other group skipped breakfast altogether. The researchers noted how blood glucose levels differed between the groups and found that those who had breakfast showed a much lower spike in blood glucose after lunch compared to those who didn t have breakfast. The two groups had similar levels of insulin.
Not only will your body burn calories more efficiently and you will have more energy by eating a good breakfast but it will boost your brainpower as well. After a long nights sleep the body has used up most of the glucose and glycogen stores that is converted to energy so these need to be replenished through the consumption of food. If you don t eat breakfast the body slows down calorie burning to conserve energy. When your metabolism slows so does the rest of your bodies functioning. You may feel tired sleepy fatigued experience headaches mental fuzziness and the inability to concentrate. By eating breakfast your energy stores will be restored and you will feed your brain the glucose it needs to fire neurons and synapses to make clear conscious decisions.
