Generating Change in Education

Many studies conducted worldwide indicate that eating breakfast improves concentration and memory and increases problem solving abilities. Children who regularly eat breakfast achieve more, have less recorded tardiness and absences from school, and suffer less from behavioral problems. Hunger and lack of food were found to be related to education related-behavioral dysfunctions.
A study published in the Human Neuroscience scientific journal gathered and analyzed the findings of 36 different studies in order to determine what affect breakfast had on cognitive abilities, behavior during studies, and academic achievements of children and youth up to age 18.

It was found that eating breakfast regularly had a positive effect on behavior and atmosphere in class. Children and youth who eat breakfast on a daily basis may be better than others in class assignments, either theoretical or practical. They are often more motivated to participate in studies, they are more alert and able to focus and listen. As a result, positive behavior in class can potentially generate a decline in the number of interruptions in class and raise study efficacy.
Another advantage found in the study is the distinct correlation between regularly eating breakfast and grades in key school subjects, mostly math and science subjects.
