Are you of those people who skip breakfast or don’t like to eat breakfast? Studies have found that eating breakfast improves short-term memory and attention. Students who eat a balanced breakfast perform better in school than those who don’t. Foods at the top of the brain-fuel list according to researchers’ include high-fiber foods such as oatmeal, no-sugar, whole grain cereals, protein such as eggs, nuts, and, yogurt, and fresh organic fruits! Avoid any high-calorie sugar-coated cereals. High-calorie sugar-laden cereals hinder concentration, in school, place of work, and life in general! Start your day on a positive note:) To your health!
