Importance of Breakfast

by The Kid's Doctor Staff

When your child was an infant, you were diligent about feeding them on schedule. So, why do so many parents let their children skip breakfast before heading out to school? A new study shows that 12 to 35 percent of adolescents skip breakfast and that number increases with age.

“Breakfast is another time to spend with your child,” says pediatrician Dr. Sue Hubbard. She says a healthy breakfast should have protein, fiber and calcium. “Try and stay away from sugar coated cereals” she advises. Dr. Hubbard also emphasizes that parents need to read cereal box labels and stay from breakfast bars because many of them contain large amounts of sugar.

“A good thing as you’re running to the door and getting in carpool is a piece of peanut butter toast on whole wheat grain bread with some milk on the side,” she says. “Breakfast gives your child fuel for the day.”
