Make sure you get enough fiber
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Eating a good breakfast helps give your brain the boost it needs to stay sharp all day.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice:
- Don't rely solely on the words "whole grain," "multi-grain" or "bran" before you buy a breakfast cereal. Check the nutrition label to be sure the cereal contains at least 2.5 grams of fiber per serving.
- Instead of "natural cereal" or granola that may be high in fat and sugar, opt for muesli made with nuts and dried fruit.
- Choose fortified cereals that contain 100 percent of the daily value of needed vitamins and minerals.
- Drink the leftover milk in your cereal bowl. It probably contains vitamins and minerals from the cereal.
