Many people continue to skip breakfast despite its being the most important meal of the day.
Busy people often rush out the door in the mornings without giving their bodies the fuel they need to handle a long day at work. They end up feeling tired by the afternoon and resort to the office snack machine or biscuit tin.
Loysa Hourigan, from Nutrition Australia, said that catching up on food at lunchtime did not provide the body with enough sustenance to keep it going for the rest of the day. ‘Even if you have had lunch, you won’t have as much food as you need. Your brain gets, depleted of glucose and you feel tired,’ Ms Hourigan said.
