March 2-6 is National School Breakfast Week—a five day celebration of the school breakfast program and a way to underscore the importance of breakfast to a student’s overall health and learning ability.
Research shows that eating breakfast correlates with improvements in students’ academic achievement in vocabulary, math and on standardized tests. Further, children who eat a healthy breakfast are less likely to be truant or late for school. And these children are less likely to be overweight or obese.
During this week, schools will be promoting the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast. Help spread the word to students and their families that the school breakfast program is an important step towards good health and good grades.SHARE:
