Lack of breakfast appetite may be sign of health issues

We're all told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, however millions of us regularly skip the daily ritual, preferring just a coffee or nothing at all, because we don't have time or don't feel hungry.

Experts are now urging people who physically can't stomach breakfast and feel sick at the thought of eating first thing in the morning to investigate why they have given up on breakfast.

A study released today saw more than a third of respondents claim they can't stomach breakfast on a regular basis.

Almost half of those surveyed say that they miss breakfast at least twice a week.

But whilst time and a lack of inspiration were factors for many, for 35% of respondents it was a question of simply not being able to stomach it, with dairy intake being a contributing factor in this.
