Health Tip: Eat a Good Breakfast
(HealthDay News) -- Eating a good breakfast helps give your brain the boost it needs to stay sharp all day.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice:
Don't rely solely on the words "whole grain," "multi-grain" or "bran" before you buy a breakfast cereal. Check the nutrition label to be sure the cereal contains at least 2.5 grams of fiber per serving.
Instead of "natural cereal" or granola that may be high in fat and sugar, opt for muesli made with nuts and dried fruit.
Choose fortified cereals that contain 100 percent of the daily value of needed vitamins and minerals.
Drink the leftover milk in your cereal bowl. It probably contains vitamins and minerals from the cereal.
