Breakfast can make or break your day especially if you’re a student. It’s not only the most important day of the meal but it can also help you maintain your health and reach your full potential.

Imagine this…you’re sitting in your class since 9 am and it’s 1 pm. You’re famished and can’t concentrate on anything but food. You miss out on the most important material during your class.

Not only are you going to lose weight but also see a drastic fall in your grades.

This is why it’s imperative for students to have a morning meal that’s nutritious and tasty.

Your breakfast should keep you feeling full and energetic for a few hours, generally until lunch.
