The convenient sampling technique was used to select the study area and Proportionate stratified random sampling technique was used to select study participants. The pilot study revealed the feasibility of the study. Reliability of the tool was evident by using test-retest method. The reliability co-efficient of correlation of the likert scale of breakfast consumption habits and rating scale of academic performance of adolescents was obtained by test-retest method and the ?r? value were found to be 0.819, and 0.984. The data were collected with help of likert scale of breakfast consumption habits and rating scale of academic performance of adolescents. Analysis of data did by using descriptive and inferential statistics.
