ABSTRACT

Background - Irregular dietary habits may affect our health at various levels. Students often show reluctance towards the breakfast. There is need to study that how and at what level this habit affects the health. The present study addresses the impact of skipping breakfast on mental health of the students.

Students were asked the questions about their dietary habits, depressed mood and tendency of anger. The data collected and analysed for the study.

Result - In this study breakfast was found as the most irregular dietary habit among young students. On analysis it has been observed that those students who have habit of skipping breakfast show comparatively higher prevalance of irritative behavior and depressive thoughts.

Conclusion – The data of this study strongly support that taking breakfast daily is an essential component for promotion of mental wellness of the students. But still more researches and studies are needed to explain this fact on scientific ground.
