“I am creating a consumer product for low-income working Mexicans to acquire healthier and better eating habits through 5 minute breakfasts.”

Mother was right. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not only does breakfast give you energy and satisfy your appetite but it has also been proven to serve as a weight control strategy. Why 5 minutes? Low-income Mexicans wake up between 5-6am not having enough time to make breakfast, therefore having to buy unhealthy food throughout the day. By providing a fast, healthy breakfast we might be able to empower people to fight obesity and make a change.
