Family Eating a Healthy Breakfast

Healthy Breakfast

by www.elcivics.com

Breakfast is the first meal of the day. Nutritionists recommend that we eat a healthy breakfast to give us energy throughout the day. Oatmeal, cereal, wheat toast, ham, and fresh fruit are healthy breakfast foods. Eggs are popular, but they are high in cholesterol, so we should only eat 3-4 eggs a week. Skipping breakfast is a bad habit, and it makes people feel tired. (3 pages)
