Milk, It's What's for Breakfast!

Students at our campus take part in breakfast in the classroom each day with a strong emphasis on milk being a vital part in their diets. The PE coaches encourage students each day to drink their milk both at breakfast and at lunch and each student is required to open their milk and finish at least half their milk each day. Most students, 85% or more, drink all of their milk each day both during breakfast and at lunch. Each student receives a breakfast item, fruit, juice, and milk and sit down first thing in the morning to eat prior to the school day beginning. This is especially beneficial at a school that is located in a low income area, where if not for the breakfast and lunch provided at the campus, some of the kids would not eat.
