Breakfast in the Classroom...for Every Classroom!
- Susan Bowles, NURSERY ROAD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
- Success with Funds
This past school year, Nursery Road Elementary increased school breakfast participation by implementing Breakfast in the Classroom and delivering reimbursable meals to all students. We are especially proud of Nursery Road Elementary because it is the first school in our district to implement this program in all classrooms. Nursery Road serves as a leader to those contemplating Breakfast in the Classroom.
What improvements have you seen at your school?
Every student was exposed to and offered a wholesome, complete school breakfast. At the end of the year, they were able to recognize the components of a well balanced meal; understand why it is important to select low-fat/fat-free dairy options, more fruit, vegetables and whole grains; and acknowledge that improving their diet enhances their readiness to learn.
