National School Breakfast Week 3/2-3/6





The first week of March is National School Breakfast Week. In honor of this week, we want to encourage students to eat breakfast at school. According to the NEA Health Information Network, "studies of school breakfast programs have found that students who eat breakfast at school show improved academic achievement -- especially in vocabulary, math and standardized tests -- have better attendance records, are less likely to be tardy and exhibit fewer behavioral and psychological problems. Children who regularly eat breakfast also have a better quality of nutrient intake and are less likely to be overweight or obese." So make breakfast time your favorite time and make time for school breakfast!
