National School Breakfast Week

National School Breakfast Week is March 5 – 9, 2018. This week gives School Food and Nutrition Services the opportunity to show the wonderful breakfast the cafeteria staff serves daily. This year’s theme is “I Heart School Breakfast!” Come “Bounce to Breakfast” where we will be giving away a “Sports Ball” to one lucky eater each day!

This week also gives us the chance to spread the importance of eating a nutritious breakfast every day. You have probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but do you know why? We perform better, mentally and physically, when our bodies are fueled. Breakfast is especially important for kids whose bodies and brains are developing and growing. Studies show that children who eat breakfast daily pay better attention in class, have increased graduation rates and have higher attendance and test scores.

Yet 3 out of 4 teachers say their “students regularly come to school hungry.” Hungry kids are more likely to have health issues and trouble learning and concentrating. They are also more prone to behavioral and emotional problems.
