School Breakfast Program
Did you know children who eat breakfast have better focus, miss less school, have higher grades and test scores, and are more likely to have a lower body mass index than children who skip breakfast? Despite knowing these facts, Nebraska continues to rank very low in school breakfast participation.
Go Big Breakfast is a coalition of advocates, educators, administrators, school nutrition professionals, and state agency leaders who have joined forces to help Nebraska improve school breakfast participation. Making breakfast a seamless part of the school day can have a huge impact on students’ health and academic success.
