Celebrate National School Breakfast Week March 4-8, 2013!
What is one thing that parents can do to ensure that their student is ready to learn, better able to maintain a healthy weight and have fewer discipline problems in school? Simply make sure students eat a healthy breakfast each day.
The benefits of a healthy breakfast are virtually endless and can make significant impact in classrooms each day. Students who eat a healthy breakfast at home or at school:
- Are better able to concentrate in the classroom
- Score higher on standardized tests
- Visit the nurse’s office less often
- Are better able to maintain their weight
If there’s no time at home, students can eat breakfast at school each day!
Each March, we celebrate breakfast with National School Breakfast Week. This year’s theme is ‘Be a Star with School Breakfast’. Eating a wholesome breakfast each morning will help students shine. Join us in each of our school cafeterias during this special week to learn a little more about school breakfast.
