Breakfast at School! Good for Kids; Good for Parents!
For parents with busy morning schedules, it’s sometimes difficult to ensure that kids are eating a healthy breakfast before they head off to school. Children often aren’t ready to eat right after waking up, and it can be challenging to find nutritious breakfast foods they like. Some kids refuse breakfast at home and discover that they are hungry when they arrive at school. The School Breakfast Program provides a great option for parents.
As you may know, a great breakfast is offered for all students at school. Studies have proven that kids who eat breakfast achieve higher academic scores, are more alert in class, visit the school nurse less often, and are better behaved in school. If morning meals are difficult for your family, let the School Breakfast Program help you out!
