Breakfast Not the Most Important Meal, Eat Only if Hungry

Parent Interventions

A new research report from Monash University shows that skipping breakfast need not have adverse outcome on our health and well-being.

The report is based on data collected form 13 randomised controlled trials over a period of 28 years on eating breakfast and weight gain mainly in US and UK. Those who consumed breakfast regularly gained on an average 0.44 kg weight and added 260 calories. Eating breakfast when not hungry and in the belief that it is the most important meal of the day can lead to obesity , according to Prof Flavia Cicuttini, Professor of Clinical Epidemiology, and lead author of the study.

The study has implication for parents who may force children to eat breakfast in the morning just before going to school in the belief that it is the most important meal of the day. Adults who rush to eat breakfast even when not hungry can see weight gains due to increased calorie intake which the body doesn't want.
