School Breakfast



Research demonstrates the importance of providing breakfast to children and youth. Children who eat a good breakfast tend to perform better in school, have a better attendance record and exhibit fewer behavior problems. In addition, children who eat a good breakfast develop healthy eating habits, visit the school nurse less frequently and are less likely to be obese. Despite the benefits of breakfast, for a variety of reasons, many families can't provide for their kids a healthy breakfast every morning.

The School Breakfast Program offers kids a nutritious breakfast at school so they can start their day off right. While the program is underutilized — only about half of students who rely on a free or reduced-price lunch at school participate — schools, districts, and public and private agencies and organizations across the country are supporting efforts to increase access to school breakfast programs.
