    Introduction: The impact of skipping breakfast on the health of developing children, particularly in adolescents, remains a much-debated health issue. In general, the morning breakfast is the most vital food of the day, which nourishes and supplements the body with energy after a long overnight fasting. Thus, the aim of the study is to examine the relationship between breakfast skipping and type of breakfast consumed with nutrient intake, nutrient adequacy, and adiposity status by questionnaire-based survey. Materials and Methods: A total of 100 young adult undergraduate students of Saveetha Dental College were subjected for a list of standard and approved questions on the basis of breakfast, body weight, and nutritional food intake in their daily life. The data collected were analyzed systematically and were represented as pie chart for plotting the distribution of various responses. Results: Thus, it is inferred from the data that people who skip breakfast, improper balanced diet, insufficient physical activities in day-to-day life, craving oily foods, and lacking healthy nutritional intake, etc., seemed to have a correlation between breakfast skipping, healthy nutrition intake, and obesity. Conclusion: Regular skipping of breakfast and consuming malnourished, unhealthy junk foods may have a serious and deleterious effect on the health condition of the students and thereby affecting their entire body functionality leading to both psychological and physical disturbances.
