Skipping of breakfast among students and tutors of colleges of education is a global issue that requires stakeholders’ intervention. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of student-teachers’ attitude towards breakfast meals in Al-Faruq College of Education. A mixed method design was used for the study. Students and teachers represented the sample population. The researchers used the randomised stratified sampling method to select a sample size of 359 respondents, which represented 50.2% of the population. The respondents were selected using a purposive sampling technique. Questionnaires were used to collect quantitative data from students while interview schedule was used to collect qualitative data from teachers. Data from the questionnaires were analysed using IBM Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 25. The quantitative data collected was organised, numbered coded, and then entered using SPSS. The researchers used a combination of descriptive and inferential statistics to analyse data. Frequency tables and percentages were used to analyse the demographic characteristics of the respondents. The study established that skipping of breakfast is a common place in the Al-Faruq College of Education and as a result has led to 20% to 30% student-teachers developing negative attitudes toward breakfast meals served in the College. The study, therefore, recommended that dining hall and meals orientation of student-teachers should be organized, strict enforcement of dining hall rules and regulation, and the keeping of the dining hall clean to attract student-teachers.
