Blast Off with School Breakfast

School Breakfast Week 2020 web
milk smallBusy weekday mornings can make it a challenge to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, US Department of Agriculture data show that more and more students are starting the day with a nutritious breakfast at school. The USDA School Breakfast Program currently serves more than 14 million students every day. Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:
  • Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math
  • Score higher on standardized tests
  • Have better concentration and memory
  • Be more alert
  • Maintain a healthy weight

“A healthy breakfast at the start of the day is a great way to ensure students get the best education they can,” said Cheryl Schmidt, L-S food service director. “National School Breakfast Week helps us educate parents and students about all the healthy, great tasting, and appealing choices we offer.”

Food service professionals at L-S prepare breakfasts and lunches every day that meet federal nutrition standards – limiting fat, calories and sodium – while encouraging students to choose from the fruits, vegetables, and whole grains offered with school meals.

The National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) “Out of This World,” campaign reminds students and parents that school breakfast provides a healthy and energizing start to the day. From March 2-6, the L-S elementary schools will celebrate breakfast with special menus, events, contests, and more.
