Breakfast is widely acknowledged to be the most important meal of the day. Children who habitually consume Breakfast are more likely to have favourable nutrient intakes including higher intake of dietary fibre, total carbohydrate and lower total fat and cholesterol. Main aim of the study was to evaluate the Effectiveness of Power Point Assisted Teaching regarding Breakfast Skipping among School Children. A Quasi Experimental one group pre-test post-test research design was considered appropriate for the study. 100 School Children were selected through random sampling technique. The data was collected by using Structured Knowledge Questionnaire. The major findings of the study revealed that pre-test mean Knowledge score (6.86), post-test mean Knowledge score (20.86) and the calculated ‘t’ value (60.37) was found to be significant at 0.05 levels. Hence it indicates that the Power Point Assisted Teaching was highly effective in improving Knowledge regarding Breakfast Skipping among School Children. The Chi-square test showed that there was significant association found with variables of Age, Educational status of Students, Occupational status of Father and Mother and Family income per month, rest of the variables were not significantly associated at 0.05 levels of significance. Hence research hypothesis (H2) was accepted. Education Programme using motivating interventions like Power Point Assisted Teaching for School Children was essential to sensitize them about the problems faced by Breakfast Skipping among School Children and the intervention that can be taken to render help to such Children.
