It’s National School Breakfast Week

From March 2-6, students learn about the importance of eating breakfast and how to eat a balanced one. National School Breakfast Week started back in 1975. Schools across the country celebrate with special menu items, events and activities.

According to the School Nutrition Association, children who eat school breakfast are more likely to:

  • Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math
  • Score higher on tests
  • Have better concentration and memory
  • Pay attention and maintain a healthy weight

Eat Nutritional During National School Breakfast Week

If your kids like cereal, opt for whole grain cereals because they’re low in sugar. The problem is that a lot of cereals have too much sugar and other artificial ingredients labeled as “healthy.” Second, always read the labels. Kids love to pick out a cereal, but the funny cartoon-box ones are the worst! Look for cereals that list a whole grain and watch for the ones high in fat and sodium.

Eggs are full of protein. Incorporate fresh vegetables and cheese which helps you load up on vitamins. Egg yolks contain vitamin D which helps build and maintain healthy teeth.

Yogurt is full of calcium and acidophilus, a probiotic that keeps your digestive system healthy. Some yogurts come with granola or chopped nuts. Layer some sliced fruit in between layers of plain or vanilla yogurt in a clear plastic cup. Not only is it fun to look at it, but it’s tasty too!
