Did you know your child can get a hot, nutritious breakfast every morning in their school cafeteria?
The week of March 6 is National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) and a perfect time to check out the healthy choices available! The NSBW campaign theme, “DIG IN to School Breakfast,” reminds the entire school community that healthy breakfast options available at school provide an energizing start to the day for students.
Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. Fortunately, Bondurant-Farrar schools offer nutritious school breakfasts, complete with fruit and low-fat or fat-free milk, to ensure students are fueled for learning every school day. Each Bondurant-Farrar school begins serving breakfast at 7:30am and menus are available online at https://www.bfschools.org/Page/232.
Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:
- Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math
- Score higher on standardized tests
- Have better concentration and memory
- Be more alert
- Maintain a healthy weight
Encourage your child to check out our great offerings next week! Our outstanding team will be on standby, ready to assist newcomers through the breakfast line. Join us!
As a reminder, families who are unable to pay the full price of meals may be eligible for free or reduced prices based on income eligibility guidelines.
