  September 2014 Edition: All American Breakfast Month and Breakfast Benefits for Students 
Dan'sBreakfast"Cereal commercials, nutritionists and your mother all agree -- breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That's why Congress has declared September to be All American Breakfast Month!"

Breakfast over the past few hundred years has changed drasically. The pilgrams used to break the fasting from dinner and sleeping all night by eating cornmeal mush and apple cider in the mornings. It wasn't until 1906 when the concept of breakfast changed forever. That year was the defining moment for John Harvey and Will Keith Kellogg with their discovery of how to make the first Toasted Corn Flake cereal. With the invention of cereal, breakfast time turned into a matter of convenience. It was all about how to eat breakfast quicker. The first packaged hot cereal debuted in 1919 followed by packaged biscuit mixes in the 1930's. It wasn't until 1964 however, until the ultimate convenient breakfast food made its first introduction, the Pop-Tart.

September is All-American Breakfast Month. This month long event encourages individuals, especially school aged children, to avoid skipping this crucial meal and enjoy a healthy breakfast. There have been recent studies done that show the correlation between students eating a healthy breakfast and their performance in school.
