How do you start your day? …Leap out of bed as the sun rises, go for a jog, take the dog for a walk, shower, get dressed, have breakfast, pack your schoolbag (don't forget your homework!) and off to school?

Or do you cling to your bed until the last minute then race round like a whirlwind?

Whatever you do, don't miss breakfast. Breakfast is a word that means what it says - break the fast. Fasting is going without food.

All night, your body has been without food, and that's OK because it has been resting and only doing the jobs it absolutely has to do.

If you're an 'early bird', then you'll have time to do everything you need to do and leave for school feeling relaxed.

If you know that you really have problems getting up in the morning, then getting into the habit of organising everything the night before is a great idea. You won't have to race around the next morning and you will have time to eat breakfast.
