School Breakfast - A Healthy Choice

School breakfast is here for everyone! The morning routine can sometimes be rushed and stressful. As students grow many have difficulties eating very early in the morning due to late homework assignments, early morning stomach issues, or just not enough time. Children in their early teens tend to sleep as long as possible, often leaving the house without anything to eat. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Studies have proven that not only is a morning meal a healthy way to start the day, but children who eat a balanced breakfast are less likely to struggle with childhood obesity. Students who skip meals generally make more visits to the school nurse.

You can't teach a hungry child, so it's important to make sure all children get a nutritious breakfast every school day. Make your morning routine easier by taking advantage of the school breakfast program. Students receive a breakfast grain product, a serving of fruit or juice and 8 ounces of fresh Maine Milk. Choices include a variety of low sugar cereals, whole grain breakfast entrees, muffins, bagels & more. We serve several juice choices & fruit daily and offer only 1% or lower fat; fresh Hood milk.

Students who qualify for reduced meals will get their school breakfast for FREE due to new legislation that was passed with the help of the Maine School Food Service Association's Legislation Committee. Parents are always welcome to attend breakfast with their child; we hope to see you there!
