Welcome to School Food Service!
(Partners in Academic Achievement)
Did You Know…… When a student starts their day with a healthy breakfast they are better prepared to focus on classroom instruction during their morning classes? And students who eat lunch show better comprehension, less fatigue and increased memory of what was learned throughout the afternoon hours. Students need to “eat to achieve.”
Eating an affordable and nutritious breakfast at school is the perfect option for students who don’t have time to eat at home, don’t have access to breakfast at home, or who aren’t hungry first thing in the morning. It is just as important for students to eat a nutritious lunch since lunch offers the same benefits that breakfast does for the afternoon classes. When a student’s school day includes eating a healthy breakfast and lunch, they are more likely to:
√ Be healthy
√ Have fewer absences
√ Exhibit better behavior
√ Focus and be more alert
√ Grow and develop properly
√ Perform better academically
√ Establish lifelong healthy eating habits
