National School Breakfast Week is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! The annual celebration was launched in 1989 to raise awareness about the availability of the School Breakfast Program in our local school systems. This year’s observance of National School Breakfast Week is March 3-7, 2014. The 2014 theme is “Take Time for School Breakfast.”
Did you know that the School Breakfast Program:
-provides meals that meet federal dietary guidelines?
-provides a healthy and affordable way for kids to start the day?
-in research studies, there is an established link between eating breakfast and academic success?
-helps kids maintain a healthy weight?
Whether it’s traditional breakfast in the cafeteria, breakfast in the classroom, or grab and go, school breakfast can be a real timesaver for families during those busy weekday mornings. For parents and students, school breakfast is convenient, healthy, and a real timesaver!
Our cafeteria staff looks forward to serving you and your child in getting his/her day off to a great start. So encourage your child to “Take Time for School Breakfast” each day.
