Smart Food Choices: Breakfast

First Paragraph:
Breakfast plays an important role in children's health. Children who eat breakfast have a higher intake of vitamins and calcium and therefore are more likely to meet the government's recommendations for nutrients as compared to children who skip breakfast. Research has shown that regardless of income, children who eat breakfast eat a better variety of foods, as well as, more grains, fruit products, and milk. They also consume less saturated fat.
