National School Breakfast Week logo

To promote the importance of eating a good breakfast, District 196 schools are celebrating National School Breakfast Week March 5-9.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for students’ success at school and throughout the day. Students who eat a healthy breakfast at home or school learn better and have fewer absences and behavioral issues than students who do not eat breakfast. Students who eat a healthy breakfast each day are also less likely to be overweight than those who regularly skip breakfast.

The district’s Food and Nutrition Services Department offers students a variety of healthy breakfast options each day. Breakfast is $1.45 for elementary students, $1.60 for secondary students and $2.05 for adults. All kindergarten students receive breakfast for free each school day through funding provided by the state.
