WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Kids are eating everything from cereal to candy in the mornings, if they eat breakfast at all!

Researchers at Temple University in Philadelphia surveyed more than 350 students about what they ate for breakfast that day.

About 20 percent did not eat anything in the morning, and about a quarter had two or more breakfasts!

More than half had just one breakfast, and of those kids, most ate cereal with milk or yogurt and cheese.

About 18 percent of kids said they bought food at a store on the way to school.

Many of those kids grabbing candy, chips and soda.
