Brits Are Ambivalent About Benefits Of Eating Breakfast

August 27, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A Harris poll finds that 25 percent of 2,032 Britons surveyed believe cooked breakfasts are protein-rich and 40 percent see eggs as a healthy breakfast food. However, 45 percent of those polled tend to skip breakfast altogether. Opinions about what constitutes a healthy breakfast vary widely. Twenty-seven percent of Brits worry about fat content of cooked breakfasts. Many worry about the carbohydrate content. And many just think cooked breakfasts are plain unhealthy. A sizeable number see cold breakfasts as unhealthy, as well: thirty-eight percent think kids cereals aimed are too sugary and the same percentage (mostly older adults) think breakfast biscuits are a total fad.
