Scientists believe that breakfast is hardly the most important influence, if we are talking about school academic. The academic performance of such children is about two times higher than that of the others.
With the full conclusions of nutritionists, you can find in publication Public Health Nutrition, and the brief overview is available on the University of Cardiff. In total, about 5 thousand participated in the study. Pupils aged 9 to 11 years old, they were trained in a hundred English primary schools. Data on schoolchildren’s food regimen were collected. Scientists particularly interested in which products consume children. The experts then followed the performance of the participants of the experiment: in some cases, data collection continued until 18 months.
As it turned out, schoolchildren, having a full-fledged early meal, studied about two times better than the rest. An important role is played here. A significant part of schoolchildren uses sweets and chips, but their reception did not have a positive effect (rather, on the contrary). But what really had a positive effect on academic performance, so it’s porridge, dairy products, fruits and vegetables. In other words, breakfast will not have a positive effect if it consists of some carbohydrates. Need proper balanced nutrition.
Scientists made amendments for different floors, and also took into account that various schools may have a different nutritional organization of students. Experts themselves say that this study has become the largest of all affecting the issue of children’s nutrition (obviously, it is about breakfasts). Therefore, debates about whether children should have a full and well-balanced breakfast, experts are invited to be completed.
For the sake of justice, we note that few of the researchers benefit breakfast. According to experts, a person’s missing breakfast increases chances of obtaining obesity, diabetes and even a heart attack. Nutritionists say that up to 35% of all the food taken on day should treat breakfast.
Different experts are recommended to include for breakfasts such as eggs, cottage cheese, turkey sausages, in addition, early food intake can complement fruits and muesli. The first breakfast can be taken at 7 am. Dining is best at 13:00, and dinner should not be transferred for a while after 19 hours. After that time, the "danger zone" occurs when food is fraught with psychological and physiological risks.
Previously, other scientists found out that the children suffering from obesity show lower mathematics results in comparison with other students. Their chances of getting a good estimate turned out to be about 10-11% lower. Experts themselves make an emphasis on the physiological characteristics of the body, but on the psychological aspect of difficulties. Such children are more often subjected to peers attacks, less often attend classes, and teachers pay them less attention than others.
