Energize Your Day! Eat School Breakfast

School Breakfast Rocks!

Eating breakfast can help improve math, reading, and standardized test scores.

Children who eat breakfast are more likely to behave better in school and get along with their peers than those who do not.

By eating breakfast, students get more important nutrients, vitamins, and minerals such as calcium, dietary fiber, folate, and protein.

School Breakfast provides daily servings of fruit, whole grains, and milk, plus roughly ¼ the recommended calories needed for lasting energy.
