Research shows that children who participate in school breakfast:

  • are less likely to experience food insecurity,
  • are better able to learn,
  • are less likely to be overweight,
  • exhibit better behavior at school,
  • consume a healthier overall diet,
  • demonstrate improved academic performance, and
  • are less likely to be late to or absent from school.
