Breakfast in the classroom
key to school breakfast success

Make the switch from cafeteria to classroom
to boost participation

Classroom Breakfast

Classroom Breakfast

Move “off the line” is our best advice for increasing breakfast participation. More and more schools are finding that moving breakfast from the cafeteria to the classroom is the key to breakfast success.  In fact, in its annual School Breakfast Scorecard, the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) credits Breakfast in the Classroom as the “most effective strategy for increasing participation.”

Breakfast BREAKS: Fast & Nutritious

Breakfast BREAKS are a cornerstone to successful Classroom Breakfast programs. This product line evolved from the simple concept that to feed more children, bring the food to them rather than expect them to come to the food. Now available in more than 20 varieties in eye-popping pouch packaging, Breakfast BREAKS are nutritious, shelf-stable and include utensils – developed for easy serving and quick clean-up.

Alternate-Site Breakfast a Win-Win for All

  • Children start the day well-nourished and prepared to learn
  • Food service programs receive significant funding through federal breakfast reimbursements
  • Teachers spend less time disciplining students and more time teaching; eating breakfast in a classroom also strengthens student-teacher relationships
  • Principals notice improved grades and test scores
  • Superintendents supplement their overall budget with revenue generated by the breakfast program
  • Parents are grateful to administration and staff for providing their children with nutritious breakfasts
