I'm amazed how many of my high school students don't eat breakfast. It could easily be 10% or more. In the last few years I've taken to quizzing people on what they had for breakfast; it's a fun 5 minutes of class, and sometimes we get the most hilarious answers! I've noted, though, that when asked enough, students will switch from "nothing" to "a Pop-Tart". Baby steps, I guess.
Joanne (see blogroll at left) has a link to an NPR story about the importance of breakfast. Not only is it important to have breakfast, but the type of food eaten can be fairly important as well. After reading her excerpts you'll know why I refer to Pop-Tarts as baby steps.
A couple days a week I'll have Pop-Tarts with a big glass of milk. Hot Fudge Sundae Pop-Tarts. If you haven't tried them, you're missing out.
