Apparently, nearly half of us turn a deaf ear to advice that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. According to a survey, the number has increased from 1 in 5, to 2 in 5, over the past 5 years. The reasons given included:
- Being in too much of a rush in the morning
- Work pressures and anxiety
The study, carried out by an oat producer also found that toast, cereal and porridge are still the country's favourite breakfasts. The traditional bacon and egg fry-up is on the decline, however, with most people eating it only as an occasional treat.
