Research confirms that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for children’s health, academic achievement, cognitive development and mental health.
Lack of breakfast can be contributed to busy morning schedules, transportation schedules, or just not being hungry first thing in the morning.
How can the cafeteria in your child’s school help your child to reach higher levels of achievement in math and reading, concentrate better, be more alert, retain more of what they learn, and participate in class? Provide a balanced breakfast that is either at low or no cost to your students each morning.
Each day our elementary and middle schools offer breakfast before school. Each meal contains whole grain items, fresh fruit, and milk. For students that don’t make it to school before the bell, Animas Valley Elementary, Needham Elementary, Riverview Elementary, Sunnyside Elementary, Escalante Middle School, and Miller Middle School, are offering a “Grab and Go” menu at a second time during the morning.
Durango School District 9R will be serving students the National School Breakfast program through the Seamless Summer Food Option which allows all students, regardless of eligibility to eat for free.
If you struggle to provide snacks, or find your child struggles to make it from breakfast to lunch, this “Grab and Go” breakfast provides the convenience you need.
