Sesame Street The Most Important Meal Song

The Super Foods sings "The Most Important Meal of the Day," from Food for Thought.

The Most Important Meal of the Day is a Sesame Street song from the 1990s performed mainly by the Anything Muppets.

A young boy (Peter Linz) is indignant about eating breakfast; he'd rather play. Out of nowhere, a chef (Julianne Buescher) appears and is shocked by what she hears. In an upbeat gospel song, she sings about the importance of breakfast, with the help of Mr. Handford and a montage of people and Muppets enjoying their meal, including a tiger, a horse, Ernie, Elmo, Telly, Big Bird, and Barkley. The boy is convinced by what he hears, and asks his mother what's for breakfast.

The Super Foods perform a version of the song (with some different lyrics) in the education resource video, Food for Thought: Eating Well on a Budget.
