Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but eating it won’t help you lose weight.
This is according to a research which suggests that those who ate breakfast, consumed 260 more calories per day and gained 1lb more than those who skipped it.
Experts say a healthy breakfast can be a good source of calcium and fibre.
It has also been shown to improve concentration and attention levels, particularly in children.
Reports say breakfast equally gives energy, stops from one snacking later in the day and supplies essential nutrients.
Its reputation as the nutritional backstop to a good day stems from observational studies showing a positive link between people eating breakfast and having a healthy weight.
