The benefits of a healthy breakfast
Breakfast not only starts your day off right, but also lays the foundation for lifelong health benefits. People who eat a healthy breakfast are more likely to:

1. Consume more vitamins and minerals and less fat and cholesterol.
2. Have better concentration and productivity throughout the morning
3. Control their weight.
4. Have lower cholesterol, which reduces the risk of heart disease.
