Many studies have shown enjoying breakfast every day is important for our health, but the timing and the contents of breakfast make it perhaps the most important meal of the day.
Why is Breakfast Important?

Eating a balanced breakfast can also help stabilise blood sugar and insulin levels, which in turn regulates appetite – meaning you are less likely to feel hunger pangs and cut down on unnecessary snacking later in the day.
