Be Healthy - Eat Well, Live Well

Breakfast is the Most Important Meal of the Day!!!

  • Many visits to the Clinic for morning tummy aches and headaches can be prevented by making sure your child eats breakfast before comming to school or in the Cafeteria after arriving!

    Children who eat breakfast have a better attitude and alertness throughout the day!

     Eating Breakfast

    Breakfast does not have to be a full cooked course with bacon, eggs and toast!  Use some of the suggestions below if you are pressed for time in the mornings.  These are 'grab and go' items but be sure to check the labels and choose the healthy higher protien and lower sugar items.

    • Pre-Bottled Instant Breakfast Shakes

    • Granola or Cereial Bars / Baked Breakfast 'Cookies' / baggie filled with Healthy Dry Cereial

    • On-the-Go Squeezable Yogurt Packs
