Smart Start: Back to School Breakfasts

Getting a smart start to your day is always important, but especially when it's back to school season! Whether you’re sending your little ones off to school or you’re starting up classes again yourself, breakfast is an essential part of the equation for effective learning. 

Most of us have heard the saying that breakfast is “the most important meal of the day,” but why exactly is that? After a long night of fasting, your body is ready to be replenished with the macro- and micronutrients it needs to function properly. The first meal of the day fuels your brain and muscles with energy so that you can stay focused and take in new information throughout the day.
