National School Breakfast Week “Take Time for School Breakfast”

 

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, National School Breakfast Week was launched in 1989 to raise awareness of the availability of the School Breakfast Program to all children and to promote the links between eating a good breakfast, academic achievement and healthy lifestyles. This year’s theme, “Take Time for School Breakfast” was created by the non-profit School Nutrition Association.
