Research shows that skipping breakfast is closely linked with weight gain and overeating later in the day2. Eating breakfast was found by scientific researchers to help reduce total daily calorie intake3. Results from a clinical study suggested that not eating breakfast is associated with a higher Body Mass Index (BMI)4 and poorer eating behaviours5. 61% Europeans miss breakfast more than once a week, according to a recent survey. Of those people, 47% blame a lack of time as their excuse6. Looking for a breakfast that ticks the boxes for both health and taste?
