Food for Thought: March 2-6 is National School Breakfast Week


By Patti Rigby, Carbon School District Child Nutrition Director

A healthy breakfast helps set kids up for success in school. Studies show students who eat breakfast have better attention and memory.

The responsibility of feeding students healthy meals is the most important part of our jobs and it is getting more complex as school nutrition programs have taken on additional responsibilities. We accept the challenge of keeping kids interested in health-conscious menu items.

Our FREE breakfasts always include: 1) a fruit offering and juice 2) whole grains 3) fat free or low fat milks 4) limited calories, fats and sodium. Meeting these requirements earns each breakfast an A+!
