National School Breakfast Week

Monday, March 8, 2021 to Friday, March 12, 2021

Students are encouraged to eat breakfast at school every day, especially during National School Breakfast Week.

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. 

See the week's menu for your campus online via Nutrislice.

Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:

  • Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math
  • Score higher on standardized tests
  • Have better concentration and memory
  • Be more alert
  • Maintain a healthy weight
