NCP Blog: Breakfast of Champions

There’s a day or month to celebrate everything, isn’t there?! According to the National Day Calendar website (which is a fun website to check if you’re looking for something to celebrate!), Better Breakfast Month originated during World War I.


In 1951, the Cereal Institute jumped on board to promote better breakfasts. The organization chose the month of September to coincide with kids returning to school.

What’s for Breakfast?

Do you eat breakfast? One of my favorite things to make in the morning is smoothies! They’re quick and easy, and it’s a great way to add fruits and vegetables to a meal. Even my kids like smoothies, and sometimes it’s the only way I can get them to eat a vegetable.


A survey by Kitchen Infinity found that 20% of adults in the United States skip breakfast, while 80% eat it every day. And what are they eating? Cereal was the most popular response (14%), with 11% of the respondents choosing eggs as their favorite breakfast food. I found it interesting that men and women were equally as likely to skip breakfast.

Not Just for Breakfast

Traditional breakfast foods like pancakes and eggs aren’t just for mornings anymore! Have you ever served “brinner” in your house? My family loves to eat waffles and other typical breakfast foods, but we don’t always have time in the morning to make them. But, they’re perfect for dinnertime!


Delish suggests seven great reasons to have breakfast for dinner, and my favorite is this: it feels like a rebellious party! It’s kind of like eating ice cream for dinner, except it’s far more healthy. My family will definitely be celebrating Better Breakfast Month with breakfast for dinner!
