Getting More Students to Begin their Day with Breakfast

Lincoln County Schools Logo

To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available for school breakfast, LCSD schools will celebrate National School Breakfast Week during April 2-6, 2018. All breakfast, as well as lunch is provided to students in LCSD at no charge thanks to a Community Eligibility Provision Grant.

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, US Department of Agriculture data show that more and more students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias. The School Breakfast Program currently serves more than 14 million students every day. Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:

  • Reach higher levels of achievement in math
  • Score higher on standardized tests
  • Have better concentration, memory and alertness
  • Have improved attendance, behavior, and academic performance
  • Maintain a healthy weight

The National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) campaign theme, “I Heart School Breakfast”, reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy and energizing start to the day for students. Students will be encouraged to show their enthusiasm for “I Heart School Breakfast” from April 2-6, with special menus, cafeteria events, and more.

“A healthy breakfast at the start of the day is one way to ensure students are getting the best education possible,” said Superintendent Tom Rinearson “National School Breakfast Week helps us educate parents and students about all the healthy, great tasting, and appealing choices we offer.” The district serves over 1900 breakfast meals daily through the federally funded School Breakfast Program. School nutrition professionals in LCSD prepare breakfast and lunches every day that meet federal nutrition standards – limiting fat, calories and sodium – while encouraging students to choose from the fruits, vegetables and whole grains offered with school meals.
