Breakfast is the most important meal for a school-age child
Breakfast is the most important meal for a school-age child because it provides the energy necessary for concentration. The ideal morning breakfast is a light meal, rich in cereals, which contains little fat and salt, so it does not burden the digestive organs. This kind of breakfast gives both children and adults enough energy necessary for good concentration. The first growth in the morning enables the unhindered growth and development of the child, but also the accumulation of energy that the child will use during the day (playing, school, hobby, etc.).
Give preference to fruit
Breakfast and snack should contain basic food groups so that the child can learn, remember, have good concentration and think. Give preference to bread and whole grain products, meat, fish and poultry products, seasonal and dried fruits, milk, dairy products with a low percentage of fat. For breakfast, the child should drink a sufficient amount of liquid (preferably non-carbonated mineral water), fresh fruit juice without sugar or tea without sugar).
More liquid is desirable
It has been proven that children who do not drink enough fluids get tired quickly and lose concentration, and may also have headaches. It is also known that children “eat with their eyes”, so make breakfast interesting and tempting. Avoid white bread, chocolate, sweet pastries and sweet biscuits.
