Those Skipping Breakfast Found to Have Poorer Diet Quality

You’ve probably been told numerous times throughout your life that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Now a new study supports this with the finding that adults who don’t eat breakfast tend to have significantly poorer diet quality and don’t meet recommended intakes for several key nutrients.

For their study, the researchers used data from the 2005–2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which included 30,889 adults. Participants completed 24-hour dietary recall questionnaires. The researchers translated the dietary intake information into nutrient intake estimates and MyPlate equivalents.

Participants who did not eat breakfast consumed fewer vitamins and minerals daily compared to those who did eat breakfast. Specifically, they had lower total intakes for folate, calcium, iron, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, and D.

In addition, participants who did not eat breakfast were more likely to eat more added sugars, carbohydrates, and total fat.

The study was conducted by researchers from the Ohio State University. It was published online ahead of print on April 30, 2021 in the Proceedings of the Nutrition Society
