Breakfast is the first meal of a day, most often eaten in the early morning before undertaking the day's work. Some believe it to be the most important meal of the day. Among English speakers, "breakfast" can be used to refer to this meal or to refer to a meal composed of traditional breakfast foods (such as eggs, porridge and sausage) served at any time of day. The word literally refers to breaking the fasting period of the prior night.
Breakfast foods vary widely from place to place, but often include a carbohydrate such as grains or cereals, fruit, vegetables, a protein food such as eggs, meat or fish, and a beverage such as tea, coffee, milk, or fruit juice. Coffee, milk, tea, juice, breakfast cereals, pancakes, waffles, sausages, French toast, bacon, sweetened breads, fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, baked beans, muffins, crumpets and toast with butter, margarine, jam or marmalade are common examples of Western breakfast foods, though a large range of preparations and ingredients are associated with breakfast globally.

Breakfast (also referred to as TVNZ Breakfast), is a New Zealand morning news and talk show airing weekday mornings on TV ONE, produced by ONE News. Debuting on 11 August 1997, it was the first of its genre in New Zealand. Originally a two-hour show, it has been expanded by one hour.
Breakfasts dominance was virtually unchallenged by the other networks until 2008, when TV3 launched Sunrise. Sunrise struggled against Breakfast in the ratings until Sunrise went off air because of financial issues in April 2010, leaving Breakfast the only morning news and talk show in New Zealand until TV3 launched their second attempt at a morning news show, Firstline, in 2011. Breakfast is currently the highest-rated morning news and talk show since 11 August 1997.

Breakfast was an Australian breakfast television program which aired live on Network Ten on weekdays, as well as a weekly highlights program on Saturday at 11:00am. It had a format consisting of news, sport and weather updates every half hour from 6:00am to 8:00am with a mixture of debate, current affairs and regular segments in between. The show originally ran from 6:00am–9:00am on weekdays preceding The Circle before being shortened to a two-and-a-half hour show, as part of the Mornings on Ten lineup. The presenting line-up consisted of Paul Henry and Kathryn Robinson, along with broadcast meteorologist Magdalena Roze who presented weather updates, while News & Sport updates were presented by various Network Ten journalists. Before being made redundant at Ten, Deborah Knight participated in Breakfast's audition. However,current Today newsreader Wendy Kingston was offered the permanent position but had to decline as she was pregnant.
The show differed from other breakfast shows by being mostly unscripted, replacing Ten's previous line-up of Ten Early News and children's programming including Toasted TV, Totally Wild, Scope and Wurrawhy. This is not Network Ten's first foray into the breakfast program market, with the network airing Australia's first breakfast program, Good Morning Australia, from 1981 to 1992.
Although the show was originally planned for a 27 February 2012 starting date, due to the political crisis Breakfast began on 23 February 2012. During the 2012 Summer Olympics, and following the axing of The Circle, Breakfast adjusted its format. However, on 12 November 2012, it was announced that Breakfast would broadcast its 202nd and final show on 30 November 2012.
