Fuel Up in the Morning!

Breakfast in the Classroom

We are heavily advertising and promoting the importance of eating breakfast with our students. The cafeteria is providing grab and go options that can be picked up and easily eaten in the classroom. The teachers are allowing students to take items back for later morning, too. The kids can be in class doing work and are still getting the opportunity to eat breakfast foods.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We utilized ideas and opinions of our wellness team on popular breakfast items that kids are more likely to eat.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

By continuing to promote and allow ownership by the students.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our breakfast counts have been up and visits to the nurse for the effects of hunger are down.
