Children, have breakfast!

Asian Family Having Breakfast Before Husband Goes To Work

do you know? According to the US Centers for Disease Control, one in three Americans will develop diabetes by 2050. This frightening number is not just an "American phenomenon." The Chinese people's comprehensive collection of Western social modern diets has led to a high incidence of diabetes. Don't forget that there are already more diabetes patients in China than in other countries. The culprit of the disease is always obesity and unhealthy diets – these are the habits that have been developed since childhood and are difficult to correct afterwards. An important part of a healthy lifestyle is never to forget to eat breakfast. According to statistics, at present, about 20%-30% of children and adolescents never eat breakfast. They may feel that this is no big deal, but the long-term consequences may be very serious. We all seem to know that breakfast is important, but how important is it? I think a series of recent research reports can be cited by parents to convince their children - and themselves!

Recently, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published an article about a 20-year study focusing on the importance of breakfast. In this study, the researchers asked about the breakfast habits of 2,000 school-age children and then tracked their health over 20 years. The results are striking: children who don't eat breakfast for a long time are 2 inches wider than the waist of a child who has breakfast! Children who do not eat breakfast have higher insulin levels in adulthood and are therefore more likely to develop diabetes. Their higher levels of total cholesterol and “bad” cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol) can cause blockages in the arteries and eventually lead to heart disease and stroke.

Therefore, girls who lose weight by not eating breakfast should pay attention to. Children who do not eat breakfast are more likely to suffer from obesity than children who have breakfast! The reason for this is that people who do not eat breakfast will be particularly hungry at lunchtime, so they can't help but eat. They may also eat a bunch of unhealthy snacks before lunch, and the amount of lunch at lunch is much larger than the average person. These bad habits will gradually manifest themselves in the wider and wider waistline, and year after year, eventually forming a huge health hazard.

Breakfast is not only related to long-term health, but many studies have also found that nutritious breakfasts can improve students' memory and scores on their exams, and reduce absenteeism. A study published in the Journal of Pediatrics in 2008 showed that high school students who insist on eating breakfast feel soberer and more active, which helps to improve short-term memory.

The breakfast content is also important. Parents know that sugary sweet cereals are certainly not as healthy as high-fibre whole-wheat cereals, fruits, nuts and dairy products. The high energy contained in the sugar-containing cereals is quickly injected into the body and then quickly dissipated. By lunchtime, the children feel very hungry and unable to fight. There is also evidence to support this: The study found that children who ate breakfast with large amounts of monosaccharides did not perform as well in terms of short-term memory and test scores.

So next time your child tries to slip out of the house before breakfast, try to press them on the table with the cereal and yoghurt, and tell them how the breakfast can make them score high and healthy - this is now Applicable, the same applies to the future.
