National School Breakfast Week
Students are encouraged to eat breakfast at school every day during National School Breakfast Week, March 2-6.
When students start with a healthy school breakfast, they will feel “out of this world” and get all the benefits of starting the school day with whole grains, healthy dairy, fruits, lean protein and other nutritious foods.
Cafeterias will be celebrating all week with special menus and fun dress-up days.
