To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available for school breakfast, Newton Conover City Schools will celebrate National School Breakfast Week during March 4-8, 2019.

 

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, US Department of Agriculture data show that more and more students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias. The USDA School Breakfast Program currently serves 14 million students every day. 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
