Time-strapped working women choosing to skip breakfast

HOW do you like your eggs?

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but new Galaxy research suggests working women are strapped for time and are choosing to skip the meal altogether.

Their research suggests more than one in five Queensland women are missing out on the all-important first meal of the day.

The Galaxy research, which was commissioned by Helga's, found that nearly two million Australian women admitted eating breakfast when they got to work.

Global Burgers manager Rodd Jensen said he had noticed the number of people choosing to eat out for brekky was on the rise.

"Customers are becoming time poor," he said.

"Like most places, we are busy on Saturdays and Sundays.

"And during the week, we open up at 7am, so it just depends on when the boys are on the sites and things like that."

Mr Jensen said business workers also would often grab a quick breakfast on the run.

Global Burger's budget breakfast, which includes bacon and eggs cooked to your liking, was the most popular choice, he said.
