Pasadena Independent School District has decided to put an emphasis on daily breakfast for all students in the district. Our campus has implemented a grab and go breakfast system in the mornings where students are given free breakfast daily. Students are served various items during breakfast including at least one fruit per day and the option to substitute the main course for a yogurt. Students will pick up their breakfast from the cafeteria line and take it back to their classroom to eat. This is to ensure that each child has the opportunity to eat breakfast daily.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The schools' coordinated school health committee pushed for healthier food options for the students in the morning and at lunch and our principal was on board with the proposal.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Too many students at one time, so we opened up three grab and go stations.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are able to focus more after eating a nutritious breakfast.
