Better Breakfast Month

Better Breakfast Month is a time to rethink your morning routine and focus on preparing healthy, tasty breakfasts for the whole family. Nutritionists often call breakfast the most important meal of the day because it helps control body weight, mood, and performance. Why September? It marks the time when children return to school, making the topic of proper nutrition especially relevant. A balanced, healthy breakfast provides essential energy for both the body and brain.


The importance of breakfast has been emphasized since the First World War, when the US government urged citizens to ensure their first meal was healthy, tasty, and balanced. This initiative regained popularity during the Second World War. In the mid-20th century, the Cereal Institute established Better Breakfast Month, which was first celebrated in 1951. The institute also conducted studies that highlighted the importance of a nutritious breakfast.
