unknown-2 Breakfast, there are two words here – break and fast.   We break the fast (not eating) from the time we went to bed until the time we wake up. Our body is like a car, we run out of gas/petrol and need to fuel up.

Think of it this way, one of your parents or guardians does not put gasoline/petrol into the car before going to work in the morning. The car needs energy to work and this is the same with the human body.

When I was a kid, I couldn’t eat any food until an hour or so after I got out of bed. I would make a peanut and banana sandwich.   I ate this upon arriving at school. As soon as I ate, I could feel the energy coming into my mind.

Here is an idea for an easy to make breakfast.
