Sausage, eggs, French toast, grits, and hot apples were all on the lunch menu last Wednesday at Bain Elementary, part of National School Breakfast Week.
National School Breakfast Week, March 4–8, is an initiative created by non-profit group School Nutrition Association and Kellogg’s Foodservice, first launched in 1989 to raise awareness about the School Breakfast Program and the importance of eating a healthy breakfast.
Studies by the Food Research and Action Center show that eating breakfast increases student’s math and reading scores and improves cognitive speed and memory.
At Bain, Kindergarten through second grade students wore pajamas to school, and third to fifth graders wore nightcaps and robes over their clothes, all to promote breakfast.
