National School Breakfast Week 2013

National School Breakfast Week

This week, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the School Nutrition Association are cosponsoring National School Breakfast Week!

Launched in 1989, the event is used to educate students, parents, and the community across the United States about the benefits of a healthy school breakfast. A recent study titled Ending Childhood Hunger: A Social Impact Analysis by whole child partner Share our Strength in collaboration with Deloitte, confirmed the benefits of a healthy, balanced breakfast at school—showing that school breakfasts are associated with positive, large-scale outcomes in education, economics, and health. This gives us even more reason to celebrate this week's events.

This year's celebration theme, "Be a Star with School Breakfast," will highlight how eating a healthy, balanced breakfast at school helps students shine bright. The weeklong celebration uses themed contests and promotions to put school breakfast programs on display. Learn more and access free resources.
