Start Your Day with a Good Breakfast


Breakfast Provides Benefits... Make it a Priority!

Breakfast is available at all schools, beginning about 30 minutes prior to the start of class.  Students who qualify for a free lunch can also receive a free breakfast; no additional meal application is needed.

The morning meal truly is the most important of the day:

Higher Test Scores. Research has proven that children who eat breakfast have higher math and reading scores.

Improved Attendance. Studies show that students who eat breakfast are absent and tardy less often.

Fewer Trips to the School Nurse. When students eat breakfast, nurses report fewer hunger related office visits.

Improved Classroom Behavior. Students are better able to pay attention in class when they have eaten. Principals confirm that they see fewer discipline problems when students have eaten breakfast.

Better Learning. Students learn best when they have eaten a good breakfast.

More Time on Learning. When students have eaten, they are better able to concentrate and behave in the classroom. This allows teachers to spend more time on teaching and less time on discipline.
