comparison of energy available for learning from two different breakfasts

Meal eaten and energy released from sugar, and starch

Energy released from protein

Meal eaten and energy released from sugar

Sugary foods eaten in place of a meal cause a quick rise in blood sugar and energy.

About an hour later blood sugar and energy decline rapidly, bringing on symptoms of hunger.

A balanced breakfast containing sugar, starch, protein and fat gives a sustained release of energy and prevents a drop in blood sugar for several hours.
