A balanced breakfast provides many essential nutrients and helps supply the energy the body will need throughout the day. According to the French National Nutrition and Health Programme, it should deliver one-fourth of the day’s caloric intake.

Morning meals outside the home are subject to changing consumer patterns, which are currently leaning towards snacking and saving time.

The tendency of upgraded menus is also in play, with some spots now serving brunch, even in France, that copious meal we enjoy in late morning or early afternoon when we have a choice between a medley of classic breakfast and lunch food and beverages.

It supplies a large number of essential nutrients like vitamins A, B12, D and E, folic acid, zinc and phosphorus. In addition, eggs are a terrific source of protein.
