This is a list of the best breakfast foods according to hungry morning people and those jonesing for a late night snack. Either way, the most delicious breakfast meals are ranked from best to worst.

Breakfast is considered by many mothers to be the most important meal of the day. For most people, having a tasty breakfast meal means having the greatest daily head start at the office or at school. And not only does a morning meal give one the energy needed to plow through the stacks of work facing him or her, the greatest breakfast foods also help them regulate their appetites, which means they won’t become so hungry that they start wolfing down any old junk food. Instead, they are able to eat healthy foods for lunch and dinner, and make sensible decisions regarding their mid-day snacks.

Medical studies have also shown how important a delicious breakfast food is in replenishing the nutrients the body and the brain used during the previous day’s activities, further proving the importance of the meal. It is why many people who skip breakfast daily complain of light-headedness and are more prone to illnesses. It could serve them well to take a look at this list.

This list includes a lot of the usual fare and a couple of surprises. And one more thing: many of the goodies on this breakfast foods list are also famous for making mouths water at the sight of them. So, not only is breakfast important fuel for humans, it is also tasty and pleasing.

Please vote up your favorite notable breakfast foods. And if you don’t see what you usually eat in the morning, please add it to the list.
