• Well over one third (40 percent) believe that trying to incorporate healthy foods takes the enjoyment out of breakfast
Not true! There are so many tasty and healthy breakfasts out there. Try one of these on-the-go ideas (which includes a healthy breakfast sandwich—with Canadian bacon, options at Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts, peanut butter, and more!) or spruce up one of your favorite morning meals with these 15 healthy ingredients you can add to any breakfast.

• One in four Americans can’t remember what they ate for breakfast over the last three days
