Health Tip: Eat a Good Breakfast09/20/13
(HealthDay News) -- Eating a good breakfast helps give your
brain the boost it needs to stay sharp all day.

"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
- 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.
