Nerea Gómez-Fernández, researcher at EvalPub, has recently published an article with Juan Francisco Albert in "Revista de Educación" about the relationship between breakfast and academic performance.

The article, which takes data from the 2015 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), contains the subject scores of 15-year-old students from various Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries.

Analysing the relationship between the benefits of eating breakfast and higher economic performance, the results of the study show that students who eat breakfast before going to class perform better in subjects such as mathematics and science.

In conclusion, the study recommends the development of policies aimed at promoting breakfast among students, such as school breakfast programmes or awareness-raising policies on social networks.
