Breakfast in the Classroom
It can be a challenge to get students to the cafeteria before school, so consider making breakfast a part of the school day with Breakfast in the Classroom!Read More
Schools provide nearly 12 million breakfasts to hungry children each day through the School Breakfast Program. On average, meals served as part of the School Breakfast Program are more nutritious than breakfast consumed elsewhere. This gives us reason to celebrate! Every March, the nation celebrates National School Breakfast Week (NSBW), which was launched in 1989 to raise awareness of the availability of the School Breakfast Program. During this week, schools put their breakfast programs on display through exciting contests and promotions.
Align your celebrations with this years’ NSBW theme selected by the School Nutrition Association.
Promote your school breakfast program and NSBW on your school’s social media pages, school newsletter and to your PTA/PTO to reach parents and the community.
Help everyone understand the importance of school breakfast – Provide professional development to all school staff, including food service staff.
If your school hasn’t started doing Breakfast in the Classroom, Grab & Go or Second Chance Breakfast, use this week as an opportunity to educate school staff and families on the benefits of alternative breakfast models (which includes providing more kids with another healthy, nutritious meal!).
