This "Build Your Own Breakfast" is an interactive exercise that lets you experiment with a few breakfast combinations and allows you to compare their basic nutrient values. Before building your breakfast you will be asked to enter data that is relevant for evaluating your daily calorie needs.
For this "Build Your Own Breakfast" exercise all calculations are based on FDA and USDA guidelines.
Each breakfast item shows calories and values for 3 basic nutrient classes: protein, fats and carbohydrates. The same information is shown for breakfast combinations.
The pre-made breakfasts are only suggestions, please experiment with your own choices. When you submit your breakfast choices, the final screen will show you the total calories for your choice and what percentage of the total calories come from each of the 3 basic nutrient classes.
