March 6-10 is National School Breakfast Week, an annual celebration that celebrates the importance of a nutritious school breakfast in fueling students for success. Learn more about how No Kid Hungry Indiana is “gearing up” to celebrate and how you can too!
We know that school breakfast changes lives. By feeding kids a healthy school breakfast, there are dramatic, positive impacts on their academic, health, and economic futures. Research shows that kids do better when they start the day right – they perform better on tests, have less behavioral problems, and have stronger attendance and graduation rates, and so much more.
To raise awareness around the benefits of school breakfast, join us in highlighting its importance and the critical role school nutrition staff play in helping children succeed in and out of the classroom. Below are a few different ways you can participate this School Breakfast Week:
