Maximize School Breakfast Program
It’s the beginning of SY2012, welcoming an array of new goals, expectations and commitments. However, from year to year, one thing remains the same: a commitment to serving healthy meals to children throughout Georgia. In SY2009-2010, Georgia Schools provided more than 200,000,000 school lunches and over 94,000,000 breakfasts were served. It is no wonder that Georgia is amongst the top states in quantities of school meals prepared and served on a daily basis.
Maximize the potential that your program has to fuel the bodies and minds of students who enter classrooms and cafeterias everyday. While lunch is the most common meal associated with schools, breakfast is equally as important. According to the USDA, breakfast can effect intellectual performance. Begin this new school year with ways to encourage students to begin each new day with a nutritious breakfast.
