Surf's Up With School Breakfast!

March 4-8 is National School Breakfast Week
Parents, did you know: Your child can ride the wave of success with healthy breakfast options at school?

Established in 1989, National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) celebrates how school breakfasts can set students up for daily success. By observing this special week every year, we’re encouraging all K-12 schools to recognize the importance of a healthy start to the day with breakfast to fuel children’s academic success.

Children who eat breakfast are more likely to....
Attain higher levels of achievement in subjects such as reading and math
Achieve higher scores on standardized tests
Maintain a healthy weight
Have reduced absenteeism and tardiness
Exhibit improved concentration, alertness, comprehension and memory
Improve their classroom behavior

Let's build a healthy school breakfast with these nutritious foods:
1 cup of fruit
1 cup of fat-free or 1% milk
Whole grains
