Breakfast is often described as the most important meal of the day, and rightfully so – it not only provides important daily nutrients such as protein, fiber, calcium and carbohydrates, but it also helps improve school performance, allowing students to do better on tests, according to the Food and Nutrition Service. As an added benefit, students who increased breakfast participation also have decreased rates of tardiness and absences.
Eating breakfast regularly may also help students maintain a healthy weight. According to a study published in “Public Health Nutrition," children who skipped breakfast in the morning were more likely to overeat and have a lower overall diet quality than children who ate breakfast every day.
All of our Daviess County Public Schools offer breakfast daily. Please encourage your child to participate in this valuable program.
