Students who eat school breakfast at the start of the school day show a general increase in math and reading scores. Students who participate in school breakfast have lower rates of absence and tardiness. Students who eat a complete breakfast have fewer behavioral, emotional and academic problems.
Lunch For Learning
A nutritious lunch is the pathway to higher test scores, better attendance and fewer behavior problems in school. Students who have school lunch consume more vegetables and milk, and less sugar, than those who do not eat school lunch. Properly nourished students more actively participate in the education experience, which benefits them, their fellow students, and the entire school community.
