Breakfast: Does it Enhance Your "Performance"? Beavis and Butthead are Skeptical... ~My Hypothesis~ I hypothesized that eating breakfast before school would increase attentiveness, optimism, and overall academic performance. I also hypothesized that eating nachos for breakfast would be just as good as cereal or other things. The Survey This survey was designed for teenagers 14-18. It was the key component in proving my hypothesis. The Details: 1. Do you consistently eat breakfast?

2. Do you often eat nachos for breakfast?

3. Are you school grades good or bad?

4. Are you generally optimistic or pessimistic throughout the school day?

5. Do you pay attention?

The Results The results were pretty cool, although only 19 of the 25 printed surveys were returned without graphic images on them. 13 of the 19 subjects ate a consistent breakfast.
4 of the 13 subjects who had breakfast daily reported eating nachos for breakfast.
10 of the 13 who have consistent breakfast eating have profficient grades, while 5 of the 9 who DON'T eat breakfast daily reported having terrible grades.
6 of the 13 breakfast eaters reported being optimistic, while 8 of the non-breakfast eaters were optimistic.
All of the breakfast gobblers reported paying attention, while only 4 of the 9 non-gobblers pay avid attention.

Background Information "Breakfast is absolutely the most important meal of the day." ~ Healthunit.org

"Children who eat breakfast show improved cognitive function, attention, and memory." ~ F.R.A.C.

According to many acclaimed sources, breakfast is pretty important. Result Analysis My hypothesis was partially correct. Of those who ate breakfast, most of them had good grades and paid good attention in class, though few of them we optimistic. Conclusion According to the results, breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. Eating breakfast daily will help you pay attention in class and ultimately get better grades, however it won't make you feel any more optimistic. Nachos seemed to have no different effect, but are superior in taste. Improvement To make this experiment better, I possibly could have given out more surveys. I also probably should have kept the ones with graphic nudity on them, because they were still filled out pretty well.
