The word “breakfast” actually comes from breaking the fast during the prior night. It’s actually not that hard to fast every night, is it?
The average person in the world has breakfast at 7:31 AM during weekdays and 8:28 AM on the weekends. Seriously, who wakes up at 8 in the weekend?!
American’s favorite breakfast is cereal. Next are porridge, toast, and cooked breakfast. The foods we are most likely to eat during the week are whole grain cereal with 37% chance, a toast with spread with 32%, and porridge – 27%. Bread and Porridge in the top 3, ladies and gentlemen! So proud!
Where do we eat breakfast? The most popular place is at home at the table, either alone or with other family members. The tier is… The sofa! However, there is a growing trend that more and more people are having their breakfast out of home. Next time we hope to see Bread and Porridge on the list!
The most important factors for people when it comes to breakfast are taste, speed of preparing and consuming, filling, and health.
One out of four people is skipping breakfast once or more times during the week. Even worse – 13% never have breakfast at all. In the US, breakfast is the most skipped meal. About 58% of Americans never have it!
29% of the ladies who skip breakfast say it’s because they are too busy getting ready. 14% agree that they don’t eat breakfast because they are either trying to lose weight or watching it closely. In fact, women are more likely to prioritize their hair and clothes for the day than their breakfast. Read our article on why this is totally wrong and please… Eat breakfast!
The world’s first breakfast cereal was created in 1863. Sadly, it needed soaking overnight to become chewable.
There is a world record for the most people eating breakfast in bed. They were exactly 289 people in 85 beds. That means 4 people in each bed. Now that’s a good morning! The record was set in Sydney, Australia on the 2nd of March in 2012. This record blends in front of the world’s largest breakfast. It involved 27,854 people and took place in Germany on the 29th of May, 2005.
And another record… The largest bowl of porridge weighed 1907 lbs (865 kg). It was made in Tula, Russia on the 10th of September, 2011.
