It’s Time to Try School Breakfast
National School Breakfast Week promotes the Benefits of School Breakfast for Busy Families

The majority of Americans feel breakfast is important, but hectic mornings make it difficult to fit the meal in every day. In fact, 40 percent of moms say that their child does not eat breakfast daily, according to Kellogg’s Breakfast in America survey. To garner increased participation in the School Breakfast Program, West Contra Costa schools will recognize National School Breakfast Week. Slated for March 3-7 2014, National School Breakfast Week is a week long celebration aimed at increasing awareness of the School Breakfast Program among students and parents.

The 2014 National School Breakfast Week theme, “Take Time for School Breakfast” encourages parents to consider the school breakfast program as a time-saving option for those busy mornings. Kids Please join us in your cafeteria for breakfast.
