Are Your Kids Getting a Good Breakfast?
Take the School Breakfast Challenge
That’s a good question to ask this week – it’s National School Breakfast Week sponsored by the School Nutrition Association. They’re encouraging parents, students and school officials to get into the habit of starting the day with a healthy breakfast.
Choose Breakfast for Better Learning and Health
When it comes to getting your children to school, a healthy breakfast is just as important as gym shoes and sharp pencils. Breakfast has been associated with nearly all of the following:
- Better memory
- Better test scores
- Better attention span to decreased irritability
- Healthier body weights
- Improved overall nutrition
