The Norristown Area School District Food Service Department is proud to serve over 395,000 breakfast meals per year. The breakfast program which can be found in every school allows students to have a great start to every day. Eating breakfast at school saves time during the busy morning and allows children to ear later, when they are hungrier. Students do better on tests when breakfast is served at school, closer to test time.
Breakfast is important because children who eat breakfast start the day with food in their stomach, so they are not distracted by hunger. It is reported that attendance, attention and behavior are improved when breakfast is served at school.
Breakfast provides nutrients like calcium and fiber that many students lack. Eating breakfast improves health and helps to prevent children from getting sick.
Many teens skip breakfast because they are concerned about gaining weight, but teens who eat breakfast are less likely to be overweight. Experts recommend eating breakfast to help prevent and treat obesity.
