Make Time for School Breakfast!

The majority of Americans feel breakfast is important, but hectic mornings make it difficult to fit the meal in every day. In fact, 40 percent of moms say that their child does not eat breakfast daily, according to Kellogg’s Breakfast in America survey.To garner increased participation in the School Breakfast Program, Fulton County schools will recognize National School Breakfast Week March 3-7.

 

The 2014 National School Breakfast Week theme, “Take Time for School Breakfast” encourages parents to consider the school breakfast program as a time-saving option for those busy mornings.

 

“Too many children are showing up at school hungry, and hungry children can’t learn at their full potential,” said Alyssia Wright, Executive Director of School Nutrition for Fulton County Schools.  “Eating breakfast at school can help families save time in the morning. And knowing that school breakfast is healthy and a great value is a huge relief for parents.” 

 

Every school day, Fulton County’s breakfast program offers students a healthy breakfast that they need to get set for a busy school day. 

 

Every morning, students have the choice of:

  • hot or cold whole grain breakfast entrées
  • fresh fruit or 100% fruit juice
  • skim or low-fat milks

Every school breakfast meets federal nutrition limits on saturated fat, calories and sodium.

 

The complete breakfast meal is an incredible value at $1.05 at elementary schools, and just a $1.20 at all middle and high schools!  For qualified families, breakfast is free or a reduced-price of $0.30.

100% of grains offered on the breakfast menus are whole grain-rich?  Everything from the biscuits, pancakes, and cereals to even the breading on the breakfast chicken patty are made with whole grains!
