Expanding Your School Breakfast Program

Last Published: 07/30/2013

The School Breakfast Toolkit has been re-designed as an online resource. In this area of the School Breakfast site, you will find information to help promote and expand School Breakfast Programs as a way of supporting positive outcomes for children. Research has shown that starting the day with a nutritious breakfast helps students stay alert and perform better in school. Having breakfast in the morning also helps children develop healthy eating habits and contributes to their overall well-being.

Many of the materials included on this site are designed to be customized. You can download PowerPoint files, information sheets, letters, and marketing materials and modify them to suit your specific needs. We hope that this information will be useful to many different stakeholders who are interested in helping more students benefit from the School Breakfast Program.

If your school does not currently have a breakfast program and you are looking for information about how to start one, please refer to the main School Breakfast Program page and your State Agency.
