Patient Education Is breakfast really that important?

Did you know that one in every five children in South Africa doesn’t eat breakfast in the morning? Evidence shows and supports that regularly eating breakfast is a fundamental habit that health professionals link to good health. Often considered the most important meal of the day by nutritionists, a good breakfast gives children the nutrition and energy they need to learn.


Rama is committed to helping families understand the importance of a nutritious and affordable breakfast. But first, how does a good breakfast help children perform better in school?


Research has shown that eating a nutritious breakfast positively benefits children in two main ways. Firstly it provides them with tons of energy to learn and play. Secondly a good breakfast provides children with the nutrients their bodies need to grow.


According to BreakfastFirst, children who eat a good breakfast are more likely to meet the recommended daily nutrient intake of Vitamin A & C, calcium, iron, zinc, and other sources of nourishment. Getting a daily morning dose of these minerals and vitamins is very important for children, which is why Rama is such an integral part of any breakfast regime. Filled with 9 vitamins and omega 3, Rama provides children with the energy they need to make the most of their day both academically and on the sports field.



Even better news is that creating a wholesome breakfast is as easy as one, two, three. Check out the Rama Good Breakfast formula to see if you’re giving your children a good breakfast:



A Good Breakfast = Brown bread with Rama + tea with milk + an egg + fruit.



At Rama, we believe that through educating, informing and lending a helping hand to South African families, we can help the children of our country achieve their dreams.
