Although National School Breakfast Week is observed for just one week, nutritious eating is celebrated yearlong and every school day. The district’s school breakfast program offers students the healthy foods they need to get set for a busy school day, says Alyssia Wright, executive director of the district’s School Nutrition department. “Students have the choice of a hot or cold nutritious breakfast entree paired with a choice of fresh fruit or 100% fruit juice and a choice of skim or low-fat milks,” Wright says. “Every school breakfast served meets federal nutrition standards limiting fat and portion size.”
Also, at just $1.05 for elementary schools and $1.20 for middle and high schools, healthy school breakfasts are affordable and can be a lifesaver for busy parents. “It’s a race for any family to get their kids ready, fed and out the door in time for school,” Wright says. “Knowing that their children can eat a healthy breakfast at school can be a huge relief for parents.”
