Food & Beverage Breakfast Cooking Family Fruits Healthy Food Lifestyle

Wake up America — let’s make the most of our mornings! Eating a healthy breakfast has never been more important. We’re a nation on the go. Nine-to-five has become seven-to-six — or worse. Hours like that require serious nutritional planning. Skipping breakfast might have worked back in your parents’ day, but rushing out the door with a quick gulp of orange juice just doesn’t cut it in 2019. That’s why National Today and Three Bridges Egg Bites are thrilled to bring you Better Breakfast Day on September 26.

They’re gluten free, keto-friendly, and contain fewer carbs and sugars than other breakfast foods. Varieties include Uncured Bacon & Cheese Egg Bites and Country-Style Sausage Egg Bites.

“Making clean food choices has never been more top-of-mind for consumers,” says Valley Fine Foods CEO Todd Nettleton. “But for many, the hectic pace of American lifestyles leaves little time for preparing a healthy breakfast full of protein and low in sugar. 

“Our Three Bridges Egg Bites offer the healthy start to the day Americans are looking for while easily fitting into their busy schedules, making them perfect for on-the-go kids, parents, and professionals.”

Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. It provides your body with the energy that keeps it going throughout the day, and that initial burst of energy that gets you up and out the door. Better Breakfast Day reminds us that if breakfast is good, a solidly balanced, healthy breakfast is just plain better!

Learn about Better Breakfast Day

You’re probably tired of hearing the saying that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” The reason why this phrase is repeated so much is that it is true. Breakfast is a critical part of the day because it gives us the energy that we need.

Plus, breakfast foods are excellent sources of vital nutrients, including fiber, protein, B vitamins, iron, and calcium. These essential nutrients are required by the human body. Plus, research has shown that if you miss these nutrients at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later on during your day. This is why it’s important to get them during breakfast time! 

Better Breakfast Day has been created to encourage people to eat better breakfasts. It is not just about reminding people about how important this meal is, but it is about making sure that people are using breakfast as an opportunity to get all of the nutrients they need.

If you are not a breakfast person, this may not sound very exciting to you. However, thanks to the Internet, we have been enlightened to a whole host of different exciting breakfast ideas and recipes, so make the most of them. 

History of Better Breakfast Day

Breakfast has always been an essential part of our diet, and has been seen as important throughout history. Recently in an attempt to make breakfast easy in a fast paced world, we’ve taken steps to reduce the time needed to prepare it. Unfortunately, this has also led to a marked decline in the quality of our breakfasts, with most choices reduced to high amounts of grain based carbohydrates drenched in sugar.

Better Breakfast Day was established to remind us that just because any breakfast is better than no breakfast, that doesn’t mean we should skimp on what we put in our bodies at the start of the day. Rich eggs, solid protein from meat, and a reasonable portion of grains (Bread or oatmeal, for instance) will help us keep motivated.

Recent research has shown that not having breakfast before school can lead to problems learning and focusing throughout the day. This just goes to show that it’s even more important to make sure that our kids leave the house with a solid healthy breakfast under their belt.

How to Celebrate Better Breakfast Day

Start your celebration of Better Breakfast Day by judging your breakfast quality. Do you simply have a piece of toast with butter? A bowl of breakfast cereal? Or the tasty but incredibly bad for you Pop-Tart? It might be time to start changing up what you have for breakfast!

Try to ensure that you get some healthy fruit in with your breakfast, alongside a nice piece of toast and some slices of bacon or pieces of sausage. Giving your body a balanced start to the day is essential, and Better Breakfast Day is your chance to start making healthy breakfast a habit!

It is definitely a good idea to celebrate Better Breakfast Day by researching different breakfast ideas and trying out new nutritious breakfast options. If you’re looking for breakfast that is going to give you a good energy boost, why not try a warm, comforting porridge?

Porridge may not sound like the most appetizing breakfast in the world, but when you add in a pinch of cinnamon, one medium dessert apple, and some semi-skimmed milk, you have all of the flavors of a traditional homemade apple pie. Delicious! 

There are plenty of other breakfasts that can give you the energy boost that you are looking for. You could opt for baked beans and wholemeal toast, for example. We recommend choosing the reduced-sugar and reduced-salt ranges. Beans are packed with protein and fiber, as well as being naturally low in fat, which is why they are a recommended choice. Or, what about low-fat yogurt, fresh fruit, and muesli?

Not only is this a breakfast that is going to give you a good energy boost but it can also help you make a start on your five-a-day. Do make sure that you choose your yogurt with care. Low-fat yogurt will provide both protein and calcium, but you do need to be mindful of the sugar content! Greek yogurt is usually a good choice. When choosing muesli, look for one with no added sugar. 

You can also share your breakfast creation with other people on social media, as well as encouraging people to share their breakfast meals with you. This is a good way to encourage people to take part in Better Breakfast Day, and you can all get great meal ideas from one and other!

Better Breakfast Day timeline

Early 1900s

Family farms

Need a couple of eggs? Head no further than the backyard. Egg "farms" typically supply enough eggs for the family — plus a few extras to sell at the local farmers' market. Eventually flocks grow to around 400 hens who live outdoors with a coop for roosting.


Hens move indoors

This landmark change brings lots of improvements. Specialized henhouses result in much healthier birds. Better feeding practices also improves egg productivity. Farmers' profits increase.


Henhouses improve

California hens produce about 250 eggs per year, while mortality rates drop. Based on this, more farms across the country build new facilities which prove beneficial for everyone.



Egg farmers need better machines to handle the increased output. Conveyor belts emerge to quickly collect the eggs and carry them to the washers. Eventually labor costs fall as the nutritional quality of eggs rises.


Eggs and your health

Texas Tech researchers reveal that for healthy human beings, "There's no limitation on egg consumption. Eggs are a good source of protein that can be easily added to a person's meal." Results also show that eating eggs does not equal higher saturated-fat intake, although different preparation methods — such as frying in butter — would make a difference.

4 Healthy Breakfast Drinks That Aren't Orange Juice

  1. Low-fat dairy

    Examples include milk, plain (or low-sugar) yogurt, as well as low-fat cheeses, such as cottage cheese. Or ditch the dairy altogether and go with almond, rice, or soy milk.

  2. Mango smoothie

    Vitamin A, vitamin C, and fiber! Tastes amazing too. Check out this recipe from the food experts at Real Simple.

  3. Kefir 

    Never heard of kefir? It's a fermented milk drink, cultured from kefir grains. Kefir's also a rich source of calcium, protein and B vitamins. The drink also contains up to 61 different microorganisms, making it a potent source of probiotics. Just tell yourself it's a milkshake!

  4. Green tea

    Make it a smoothie! The experts over at mindbodygreen recommend combining spinach, lemon juice, avocados, bananas, blueberries, and a pinch of sea salt.

3 Ways to Celebrate Better Breakfast Day

  1. See a nutritionist

    Too expensive? Remember, lower medical bills can quickly outweigh the cost. Plus, nutritionists can come up with a personalized plan for you. If not, you can always do your own research about which breakfast foods are right for your diet and situation.

  2. Skip the sugar

    Three Bridges Egg Bites bring a wholesomeness back to breakfast. Take a pass on the supermarket breakfast aisle (and those protein bars) and switch to a Three Bridges breakfast — high in protein while low in sugars and carbs.

  3. Read the labels

    No excuses. Labels have all the information you need to make healthy decisions. Take some time on Better Breakfast Day to really discover what you're choosing to eat.

Here's Why We Love Better Breakfast Day

  1. Smart breakfast choices fight diabetes

    Healthy breakfasts can help keep you fit by filling you up for longer periods. That way, you tend not to overeat, which helps your blood sugar stay at lower levels — cutting your risk of type 2 diabetes.

  2. Nothing artificial

    Three Bridges Egg Bites contain all-natural ingredients and no artificial flavorings. They're prepared and shipped fresh — with antibiotic-free meats, rBST-free cheeses and no binders. Three Bridges has made a commitment to use only the finest natural ingredients.

  3. Better breakfasts = a better day

    Consuming fresh fruits like berries, melons, and raisins in your morning meal results in less fat and higher nutrients to start your day. Also, the "Journal of Adolescent Health" reports healthy breakfasts can increase concentration and short-term memory in young people.
