Claim: Eating breakfast improves students’ grade.
Logos: Breakfast means “break the fast”, which is the first meal of a day after 8-10 hours of sleep. Breakfast is important in re-energizing the body with nutrients, it maintains adequate blood sugar level and prevents the body from fatigue the entire day. Having a healthy breakfast is helping students to concentration and better grades. Breakfast is especially important for young students whose brains use up about half of the body’s energy. Students who eat a breakfast have better concentration than students who skip breakfast altogether. With breakfast, students can easily focus on study and become less distracted. They are also able to understand the lecture and retain the new information better than students who are hungry. The Cardiff University study was published in the journal Public Health Nutrition in December 2015. The study of 5,000 students in Britain showed that students who ate breakfast were up to two times to achieve an average grade than those who did not eat breakfast.
