School Breakfast Program
For parents with busy schedules, it can be hard to make sure that kids are eating a healthy breakfast before they go to school in the morning. Sometimes children aren’t hungry right after waking up, and it’s hard to find food they like to eat that is also healthy. Also, some kids refuse breakfast at home but are hungry when they arrive at school. Fortunately, we have a great breakfast program for all students, and it’s available at school every day. If morning meals are difficult for your family, let the School Breakfast Program help you out!
Some benefits of breakfast:
- Not all children eat breakfast and those who do have improved moods and increased alertness throughout the morning.
- Children and adolescents who eat a protein-rich breakfast report lower hunger for up to 4 hours.
- On average, students who participate in the School Breakfast Program eat a breakfast of higher nutritional quality than students who eat breakfast elsewhere.
