Leaning Into the Morning
With our increasingly busy lives, breakfast is one meal that we often don't give much thought to as we're rushing to get out the door. And while nutritionists continue to debate whether the first meal of the day is the most important, most of us prefer to have something to eat to get us through the morning — but the amount of calories each breakfast option contains varies widely. To help you figure out which breakfast options are right for you, we ranked the most common breakfast foods by calorie count using the USDA's Food-A-Pedia guide, which allows you to compare the nutrition information on thousands of foods.
