National School Breakfast Week - March 2-6, 2015
Students Bolster their Brainpower with School Breakfast
Wichita Public Schools Celebrate National School Breakfast Week
Children who eat breakfast at school start the day ready to learn—reflected in higher test scores and better classroom behavior. However only half of the children who eat lunch at school also eat school breakfast, according to the Food Research and Action Council.
The 2015 National School Breakfast Week theme, “Make the Grade with School Breakfast” reminds everyone in the school community – parents, students, administrators – that a healthy school breakfast sets students up for a day of learning and academic success. The theme will appear in school cafeterias during National School Breakfast Week, March 2-6.
Every school day, Wichita Public School's breakfast program offers students a healthy breakfast that they need to get set for a busy school day. Every school breakfast served meets federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories, sodium.
“Make the Grade with School Breakfast” was created by the non-profit School Nutrition Association with support from Kellogg’s Foodservice. National School Breakfast Week was launched in 1989 to raise awareness of the availability of the School Breakfast Program (SBP) to all children and to promote the links between eating a good breakfast, academic achievement and healthy lifestyles.
