What Do Indians From Different States Eat For Breakfast


Did you know the word 'breakfast' means to 'break the fast' — the time period between the present morning and our meal the night before? A healthy and complete breakfast will enhance your child's physical and mental well-being. Which is why breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Children who often skip their morning meal get hungry within the first few hours and tend to eat more junk food. Yes, foods like chips and cookies are delicious but extremely unhealthy too, in the long run. In fact, eating too much of such foods can lead to children developing eating disorders and other health-related problems. On the other hand, studies show that a balanced breakfast can build up your child’s stamina and hone her powers of concentration. This, in turn, will spur her to excel both in studies and sports and also, maintain a healthy weight.

But, does it worry you that your child is unwilling to eat a wholesome breakfast? The good news is that our country is an assortment of different cultures and regional specialities, when it comes to food. This paradise of flavours is filled with healthy breakfast ideas to kickstart your child's energetic day.
