Most of us eat breakfast every day, but we rarely think of the the origins behind the meal. From etymology to cultural history - go deeper behind breakfast on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past as Linda Pelacchio is joined by author of "Breakfast, A History", Heather Arndt Anderson. Hear how the grab-and-go approach for breakfast has maintained over time and why grains have proven to be so important not only in the meal but in human evolution at large. Discover the early days of the Kellogg brothers as they searched a product that was easy to chew and ended up revolutionizing the way we eat breakfast. From corn to dairy and coffee to cocktails, dig deep into breakfast on A Taste of the Past. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons. Break music provided courtesy of Cookies.
