Breakfast is an important meal. Growing bodies and developing brains rely heavily on the regular intake of food. When kids skip breakfast, they can end up going for as long as eighteen hours without food, and this period of semi-starvation can create a lot of physical, intellectual and behavioral problems. Breakfast eaters can concentrate better, have better attendance, are less irritable and fatigued, and have better control of their weight. Skipping breakfast is associated with increased body weight.
"Go" foods refer to nutritious foods which give the body the energy to go and grow. "Slow" foods refer to foods high in fat and added sugar which can slow the body down.
