Well-nourished students have well-nourished minds. Starting the school day with a nutritious breakfast is a healthy way to help students focus and concentrate on schoolwork. To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available to them, the Ohio Department of Education is promoting National School Breakfast Week.
“National School Breakfast Week provides an opportunity for schools to highlight the importance of starting each day with a nutritious meal,” said Paolo DeMaria, superintendent of public instruction. “For students who do not have the chance to eat at home before school, the breakfast program ensures they can be ready to learn and succeed in school. I appreciate the efforts this week to educate Ohio’s students and families about the importance of breakfast.”
