What you eat is turned into energy by your body. If you don’t eat when you first get up, then your store of energy is low and you can’t think or work as well and your stomach keeps letting you know that it is waiting for food. By the time morning break comes along you are ‘starving’.
Who makes breakfast in your house? Mum, dad, older brothers or sisters, or do you all do your own thing? Whatever happens, it is a good idea to have a drink or something to eat.
It makes sense to check your car’s fuel before setting off for a trip. It makes sense to check every morning that your body has the fuel to keep it working well all through the day. Remember that sugary foods do give you an energy boost but it doesn’t last very long. You need to eat foods like cereal, bread, eggs, milk and dairy foods that will release energy for a longer time and keep you going until lunch.
