Mom was right when she said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After all, breakfast means “breaking the fast,” starting your day after a night of not eating with the energy and nutrition you need. A healthy breakfast can help you concentrate better, give you strength and even help you to maintain a healthy weight.
