Schoolwide Breakfast
Our whole school promoted the importance of eating breakfast every day. We are doing grab and go bags. We also have set aside special days where the whole school has granola bars and string cheese together in the classrooms. Kids color sheets and discuss the importance of a good breakfast helps our studies and starts our day on the right foot.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our wellness committee sat down together to discuss how to encourage all students and teachers the importance of breakfast and to make time every day for it.

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

Some teachers have been reluctant having kids eat in the classroom. Encouraging teachers to participate in eating with the kids has helped. Also teaching students about how important breakfast is has helped the ease and routine.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Kids are asking for grab and go bags every morning if they haven't had breakfast. They are reminding their friends make sure to eat it's good for you.
