Abstract

Many adolescents seem to skip breakfast or do not consume it regularly. Regular consumption of breakfast may help meet daily nutritional requirements, maintain a healthy weight, and improve cognitive functioning (Hoyland et al., 2009). The aim of this study was to determine the rate of breakfast skipping in 15–17-year-olds and to explore what influences this because data have been published in the UK
