Your mom always said breakfast was the most important meal of the day. But there are grown-up benefits to breakfast too. A new report compares breakfast eaters with breakfast skippers and finds that breakfast eaters:

* Take in significant less fat over the course of an average day.

* Have more fiber in their diets.

* Consume a more nutrient-rich diet, especially if they consume a fortified cereal.

* Tend to be leaner than breakfast skippers, in contrast to the common belief that foregoing breakfast is a good way to lose weight.
