According to some British researchers, eating breakfast as a teen is very compulsory.
Failure to do so and you stand the chance of loosing out on vital nutrients.
“This study provides evidence that breakfast is key for parents to ensure that their children are getting the nutrition they need,” said senior study author Gerda Pot, a lecturer in nutritional sciences at King’s College London.
“Further studies that investigate specific foods and dietary quality would help to identify if the differences are due to the different types of breakfast being eaten by different age groups, as well as provide more insight into the impact of breakfast on dietary quality overall,” Pot said in a King’s College news release.
The fact to take home is that without breakfasts, kids may not get recommended amounts of nutrients.
The study was published Aug. 16 in the British Journal of Nutrition.
