The study aims to explore whether the breakfast education intervention offered to parents, leads to improvement in students’ breakfast and their academic achievements. Data was collected regarding the demographics of the children and their daily breakfast consumption through questionnaire. 250 Jordanian parents of children acquiring education from public-primary schools were recruited. Statistically significant differences were observed between the experimental and control groups (p-value=0.001<0.05), the results supported the experimental group regarding academic achievement scores. Targeting parents for health education about breakfast is crucial for activating the parental concerns towards breakfast, because of its importance and effects on children academic attainments.
