Better Breakfast Day

Modern life can be hectic, and many of us find ourselves rushing to work or getting our children to school on time every Monday. This not only can cause us stress but can also lead us to make less-than-optimal breakfast choices. How many people grab a doughnut or a breakfast sandwich from a fast-food restaurant drive-through instead of eating something that’s good for us? Probably quite a few.

Unfortunately, eating “junk breakfasts” can result in a person feeling bad all day long or in that person “crashing” before lunch. To help combat the problem of bad breakfasts, someone has decided to create a holiday called Better Breakfast Day.

This day is observed on September 25th and encourages everyone to reevaluate their breakfast choices and make better choices in the future. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so perhaps we should treat it as such.

The History of Better Breakfast Day

Who invented Better Breakfast Day? We just don’t know. It appears to be a holiday that’s only been around for a few years, but we’ve been unsuccessful so far in attempting to trace the origins of this day.

It’s not a day attributed to any organization or individual, yet it’s a holiday that’s observed every year in many countries. We’ll continue to try to find the origin of this holiday, and if we do find its origin, then we’ll update this section with the additional information.

Observing Better Breakfast Day

For breakfast, most experts agree that people should choose whole, unprocessed foods from each of the following five food groups: vegetables, protein foods, grains, fruits, and dairy. Eggs, nuts, seeds, and dairy products such as Greek yogurt are great foods to eat for breakfast.

Other great breakfast food items include oatmeal, berries, cottage cheese, whole wheat toast, black coffee, and green tea. Choosing these items is a great way for people to observe this day. Everyone observing Better Breakfast Day can also use the day to offer others their suggestions for a better breakfast using the hashtag #BetterBreakfastDay on social media.
