Breakfast might not just be the most important meal of a child's day - it might be one of most important meals of their life. A new study released Wednesday by non-profit group Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign shows the positive effect that school breakfast can have on a child's performance in class and on standardized tests, and what this can mean for their future.

Eleven million low-income students eat a school-provided breakfast. Share Our Strength partnered with professional services firm Deloitte to analyze third party studies and publicly available data to assess the impact of existing school breakfast plans on students' academic performance. They found some rather eye-opening statistics.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

September is National Breakfast Month!

It's said to be the most important meal of the day, the one that sets the tone for how hungry you'll be, and the food choices you make for the rest of the day. Yet, most of us skip breakfast. Often we don't have time, or energy to make something nutritious and filling.

Here in the U.S., it’s time to pick up our spoons and start eating cereal. We used to hold the world record for most cold breakfast cereal consumed (a record set in May 2012 in Rye Brook, New York). Now that title has been cruelly snatched away by 648 New Zealand schoolchildren, who, along with their teachers, ate more than 300 boxes of Weet-Bix cereal, soaked with 106 gallons of milk.

We have some training to do, to get back the cereal-eating title. Here are some cereals to help the cause, no matter what your special dietary restrictions might be. Chocolate-for-breakfast cereal? Check. Save-the-world cereal? Check. Coffee-meets-cereal? Check. Go, team!

Big, fat restaurant breakfasts

Q: What do health enthusiasts have in common with anyone who’s got a really bad hangover?

A: Breakfast as your key meal.

True, diet breakfast might not always resemble the one that you go for after a night of bad decisions with the Long Island Iced Tea three-for-one special. This list is geared for those in need of hot fat and starch in extra-large quantities. But here’s good news if you live in both worlds: in her book, "The Big Breakfast Diet: Eat Big Before 9 A.M. and Lose Big For Life," Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz says, "You can have all the foods you crave, from pasta to bacon to ice cream, with just one catch - you have to eat them before 9:00 A.M."

Now, good luck getting yourself out of bed in time to find these breakfasts.
