Cereal With Milk Healthiest Breakfast Choice

GUILDFORD, United KingdomIndividuals who start the day off with a good breakfast of cereal and milk have a lower fat and higher carbohydrate intake during the day compared to those who skip breakfast, according to a new study published in the BNF Nutrition Bulletin.

U.K. researchers analyzed 12,068 food records from respondents in the National Diet and Nutrition Survey of adults ages 19 to 64. One in five adults ate no solid food for breakfast, one-third chose ready-to-eat cereal or porridge, and 45 percent ate a non-cereal breakfast. Coffee and tea also were consumed 84 percent of the time. Milk was consumed with 82 percent of breakfasts, followed by cereal (39 percent), bread (33 percent) and fruit (14 percent).

The researchers concluded breakfast cereal consumed with milk was associated with significantly better macronutrient composition.
