On mornings when you don’t eat breakfast, how do you feel around 10:30 or 11? On those few days when I skip breakfast, I’m usually in a bad mood with a headache by midmorning. It’s definitely not a good way to get much accomplished and, especially for children, it’s not a good way to learn. That’s why the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Breakfast Program is so important for the nearly 13 million children who use the program each day. Next week, March 7-11, will be National School Breakfast Week to highlight the importance of this program.
