We offered a breakfast opportunity for junior high students in their classroom Monday, Thursday and Friday of one week to see if we could increase the participation of breakfast for this student population. Prior to that week only 20% of students , approximately 10 out of 52 students went to breakfast in the cafeteria. When we served breakfast in the classroom 40/52 students, approximately 77%, ate breakfast. We discussed the importance of fueling the body to get the school day started and increase their academic performance.
