Choosing the right breakfast food can help you feel fuller for longer and improve academic performance – and it doesn’t have to be hard work!

Aim for half your plate to be vegetables and fruits, a quarter protein, and a quarter whole grains as recommended by Canada’s Food Guide.

To make it easier on busy mornings, meal prep is your friend! Many breakfast foods like overnight oats, boiled eggs and yogurt parfaits can be prepared ahead of time for easy meals on the go.
