What's your favorite breakfast cereal?  Did you know that eating breakfast actually helps your mental state for the rest of the day?

While you're sleeping, your body loses glycogen.  Glycogen is the fuel your body, and especially your brain, needs to be energized and alert throughout the day. According to most nutritionists, when you don't eat breakfast it makes you more vulnerable to cravings and less likely to make healthy choices in the morning and throughout the day.

One study that tracked nearly 10,000 young people from adolescence into their twenties found that not only did skipping breakfast lead to being overweight, but people who missed out on their morning meal also increased their eating at fast food restaurants, and both unhealthy behaviors caused them to gain weight.

The FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) says that breakfast is especially important for children to help them better focus in school.
