Eat Well Utah loves school breakfast! Why? Because students who eat school breakfast are more likely to maintain a healthy weight, drink more milk, and eat more fruit daily. Also, eating school breakfast is associated with lower rates of absenteeism, fewer behavioral problems, and higher grades and increased standardized test scores.
My favorite part about school breakfast programs is that they can simplify a family’s busy morning and ensure kids are getting the nutrition they need. As you can see below, school breakfast programs follow MyPlate and provide healthy options that kids need to launch their day.
Utah School Breakfast Week is March 19-23! Take time to find out about the school breakfast program your school has to offer. For more on creating a healthy breakfast, click here.
