With parents facing longer work hours, some families do not have the time for breakfast, while older students develop an apathetic attitude towards breakfast. Students who skip breakfast or have unsuitable breakfasts are found to suffer lack of concentration for up to the first two hours of the school day.
Skipping meals can also lead to mental and physiological issues, such as anxiety, short-temperedness and weight gain (by starving muscles, causing the brain to crave high-energy foods). Cereal for Coffee works with local businesses that donate cereal and milk to help students to have a healthy breakfast, and offer them the best opportunity to learn.
