Why is breakfast important? Breakfast helps you get a great start to your day.

What happens if you skip breakfast? Your body will not function right.

What is your favorite breakfast? My favorite breakfast is an omelet containing mushrooms, cheese, and peppers, along with toast, fresh fruit and milk.

  1. Combine milk, juice, oats, rhubarb, cinnamon and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, cover and cook at gentle bubbling.
