“It is really important to eat a well-rounded breakfast. It jumpstarts your day and gives your body the fuel it needs to think and be strong and do your best,” Katie Couric reveals.

With the many roles she plays, from mother to author to journalist, Katie knows it’s super important to start off the day with a nutritious breakfast.

And, according to Katie, milk is her go-to fuel in the morning.

“We always try to start our day with whole grain cereal and 1% milk. One of the things I have discovered is that breakfast is so important for everyone. You have to get your body in gear – give it a jumpstart – you have to have some nutrition to get your body operating on all 4 cylinders. I think breakfast has become my favorite meal.”

Katie joined the Milk Mustache community and recently launched a new ad showing her in pjs and starting off her day with a newspaper and a glass of milk.

“I have always loved looking at the milk mustache commercials. It’s such a great campaign and it’s such a healthy message,” adds Katie.

Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift and Christie Brinkley are few of the other celebs who’ve sported the iconic milk mustache.
