Healthy breakfast



Breakfast is the most important mealtime to start your new day. While you sleep, it's been 6 to 10 hours when you haven't eaten any food, and that means your glucose levels are low.


Glucose is a source of energy for your body.


It is important to have breakfast during the first hour of your day so that your body receives the energy and nutrients required and be able to face the new day with vitality.



A good breakfast should provide calories, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber and should also have between 300 and 400 calories.
