Tell me what you eat for breakfast and I’ll tell you who you are. Dieticians agree that the first meal of the day is the most important one. Most people who have problems with their weight do not have breakfast – this is shown by statistics and explained by the science. But you do not agree. You do not need breakfast, but only a coffee because you get hungry later on in the day. The diagnosis is clear – you overeat at night. Only people who overeat at night do not need breakfast in the morning. Tonight, try to eat 1/3 of what you ate last night and you’ll see that in the morning your stomach will be empty and ready feed it with something healthy.

Attention! Because breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it doesn’t mean that you have to start stuffing yourself up from the morning. Don’t think that when dieticians say healthy breakfast, they mean fried eggs with bacon, 3-4 slices of bread with butter and jam, and three glasses of orange juice. These are your calories for one whole day and even for the next one. A healthy breakfast is a rye bread toast, with a table spoon of honey and a cup of skimmed milk; or half a cup of oats meal with a cup of skimmed milk and half a glass of fresh juice; or one boiled egg with a cup of skimmed milk.

Do you still have questions about your healthy and tasty breakfast? Then, the Breakfast Festival is meant for you. The festival will take place for the third time on the central Athens square – Constitution. During the weekend of May 9th and 10th, from 10:00am until 07:00pm, dieticians, endocrinologists, and pediatricians will speak about all topics connected to the breakfast meal with parents and children. Science is certain that we form our nutritious habits from a very early age and we fight their bad sides throughout our lives.

As a tradition, food producers participate on the festival, who will present their products from the healthy and nutritious side under the close supervision of the dieticians. There you can get informed – honey or jam, rye or white bread, ready or freshly squeezed juices, butter or margarine, oats meal or cornflakes? All you need to do is go there and ask questions. The organizers have done their part to provide the answers.
