Studies have shown that students who eat breakfast benefit nutritionally and academically. However, too many children are still starting the day on an empty stomach, whether it’s because they have limited time, aren’t hungry first thing in the morning, or have no access to food. Offering a breakfast program in your school will benefit the entire community.
For a successful school breakfast program, consider these key components.
Determine key stakeholders and be intentional with getting these important people to support your school breakfast program.
Identify the correct school breakfast model to meet the needs of the students and the school.
Develop a menu that is delicious and nutritious for students.
Create ways to market school breakfast by getting students and parents excited to be a part of the program.
