How to Put Breakfast First


Improving school breakfast is a community concern:

  • Parents want to do everything they can to help their kids grow up healthy and do well in school.
  • Kids know that they feel and learn better when they've eaten a well-balanced breakfast.
  • Schools know that hungry kids can't learn.
  • Community advocates, including food banks, know that families are struggling to provide their children with sufficient, healthy meals.
  • Health care providers know that poor nutrition contributes to lifelong diseases.
  • Business leaders and other community members know that helping kids grow up to be productive workers, active citizens and strong family members is in everyone's best interest.
