A 2009 study found that workers who failed to eat a good nourishing breakfast cost the economy approximately £22 billion every year, or 923 million man hours. A similar study identified the equivalent of 97 million working days being lost. Other important findings included:
45% of the population fail to eat a proper meal in the morning, and 46% said they lack energy on the days they have missed their morning meal.
43% admit to being less productive without breakfast, 36% said that they felt tired, and 28% stated they suffer from a lack of concentration
20% admit they are unable to do their job properly
And the benefits seem to go beyond the immediately quantifiable, with wider reaching business benefits such as improved atmosphere, reinforced company culture, and better staff retention.
