Poor breakfast – poor health

A new university study shows that teens that ate poor breakfasts also had a higher incidence of metabolic syndrome 27 years later when compared to teens who ate substantial breakfasts. Metabolic syndrome is a list of factors that linked to increased cardiovascular disorders and encompasses abdominal obesity, high levels of harmful triglycerides, low levels of good HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure and high fasting blood glucose levels. Young people who neglected to eat a quality breakfast had a whopping 68% higher incidence of metabolic syndrome. So, who the heck is in charge of feeding these kids? We need to educate these parents.

Feed that kid a hearty breakfast!
