I hardly ever get to eat breakfast, but whenever I do, it's usually a cup of coffee with either hotcakes, cereal or toast. When I'm late, which is mostly the case (oops), I usually just swing by McDonald's (a block away from the office) to get myself either Hotcakes (a family fave!), their classic Longganisa Meal (my college comfort food) or an Egg McMuffin. With coffee, of course!

I can now see how important breakfast is. My mom would always tell me that if I'm skipping meals, I shouldn't skip breakfast, regardless if it's the easiest to sacrifice out of breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nutritionists would agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It keeps you going throughout the day, aids in proper metabolism and helps you concentrate. My kids aren't breakfast eaters either, but we've been changing our eating habits lately, and have started to practice eating breakfast on a daily basis.

National Breakfast Day

McDonald's understands how important breakfast is, and initiates the campaign to educate Filipinos on how to start their day right. McDonald's President and CEO Kenneth Yang said, "McDonald’s realizes the importance of breakfast and the role it plays in the lives of our customers—seen with our ‘Hooray for Today’ campaign. With National Breakfast Day, we are taking ‘Hooray for Today’ to a new level by giving Filipinos an opportunity to taste just how good breakfast at McDonald’s really is.

With that, McDonald's Philippines joins over 5,000 McDonald's restaurants in Asia, Middle East and South Africa in staging the region's first and biggest breakfast activation to date - National Breakfast Day. On this day, over 5 million McMuffins will be given away in celebration of this event.

And yes, Filipino customers will join in the fun and have another great reason to cheer ‘Hooray for Today!’ On March 18, 2013, approximately 300,000 FREE McMuffins will be given away nationwide to encourage customers to start their mornings on a positive note - that is, with a delicious breakfast at McDonald’s.
