Fuel Greatness with School Breakfast!
March is an exciting time as we celebrate National Nutrition Month and National School Breakfast Week. New England Dairy & Food Council and Fuel Up to Play 60 would like to invite you to celebrate and support school breakfast through our Fuel Greatness campaign this spring. Access to nutritious and affordable food, starting with school breakfast, as well as 60 minutes of play a day will continue to help kids fuel their greatness inside and outside of the classroom. Parents, community members, health professionals, school stakeholders and the youth themselves should take action for healthy kids, because the kids of today are the future of tomorrow! Some things you can do to get involved:
1. Check out our School Breakfast Toolkit for resources schools can use to promote and support expanded school breakfast programs.
2. Follow New England Dairy & Food Council on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and help us spread the word about the importance of school breakfast and fueling greatness in all students using #FuelGreatness.
