Laissez les bon temps rouler with School Breakfast in Louisiana!
National School Breakfast Week is March 4-8, 2019. The #NSBW19 theme is "Start Your Engines With School Breakfast," which is designed to show parents, students and school officials the benefits of fueling up for the day with a healthy school breakfast.
The “Start Your Engines” Campaign Encourages Louisiana Families to Choose Breakfast at School!
Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, US Department of Agriculture data show that more and more
students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias. The USDA School Breakfast Program currently serves 14 million students every day. 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
