How important is breakfast? According to a new study, students shouldn't be skipping it before heading off to school.

FOX News Radio's Bill Vitka reports:

If you want a better test score, chow down and don't miss breakfast. British researchers say students who skip the morning meal lose 7% of their power of attention, they're 9% slower on picture-recognition, 10% less consistent -- and more erratic -- in response time. And that, according to the Wall Street Journal, puts girls in the crosshairs because they are more likely than boys to skip breakfast.
