Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The purpose of this study is to examine breakfast-eating behaviors of Historically Black College and University (HBCU) students in conjunction with their breakfast awareness and eating habit satisfaction. A self-administered survey was distributed in fall semester 2016 (N 289 students). Results show that 72% of students at a HBCU who participated in the survey were only moderately satisfied with their eating habits. Breakfast skippers were more likely to be African American students. Opportunities exist for family and consumer sciences (FCS) educators to develop intervention programs about putting knowledge into practice in order to improve African American students' health and well-being through breakfast eating.
