Breakfast and Back to School Resources!



Did you know that 93 percent of Americans know they should be eating breakfast, but only 44 percent make the time to do so? Thanks to the Wheat Foods Council's recent launch of the "Back to Breakfast" campaign, National Breakfast Month will provide many interesting and healthy resources for families with children going back to school.  


September is National Breakfast Month  


An early study on the effect of breakfast and academic performance was released in 1998 by Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. The study called for expanded national attention to public school breakfast programs. The study proved children who eat breakfast have significantly improved math scores and above average academic attendance records. Study students also experienced less tardiness and hyperactivity in relation to students not eating breakfast.

Take time to enjoy our selection of back to school resources and breakfast recipes!

What is "Breakfast"?

Breakfast is the first meal of the day, taken in the morning before undertaking the day's work. Among English speakers, "breakfast" can be used to refer to this meal, or, less commonly, to refer to a meal composed of traditional breakfast foods (eggs, oatmeal, sausages, etc.) served at any time of day.
