PAKISTAN , March 30, 2014 () – Britons are shunning a traditional breakfast and more and more are starting the day with a burger, new figures reveal, Daily Mail reports. More than 100 million burgers were eaten as the first meal of the day last year as the breakfast burger soars in popularity. When British people's breakfast eating habits were monitored, the study showed burger servings before 11am are up more than six per cent since 2012. But despite its growing popularity, bacon sandwiches remain the breakfast of choice for British people eating on the go, with 268 million of them eaten for breakfast last year.
