It is said that between 12 and 34% of children under the age of 18 skip breakfast, which is particularly true among young girls. This might be the result of a weight-loss diet or weight preoccupations, which can lead to eating disorders.
Skipping breakfast is often linked to smoking, lack of exercise, and diets.
The daily fiber intake is significantly higher among those who eat breakfast. Plus, fibers provide a better feeling of satiety.
