School Breakfast in the News

2014-03-10 00:00:00

There are hungry children in every school. In fact, there are more than 40,000 food  insecure children in New Hampshire. Children with hungry bodies and preoccupied minds cannot perform to their highest potential in the classroom. Regardless of the reason that children do not eat breakfast before reaching the classroom, children of all ages do better in school when they start the day with the strong foundation of a good breakfast. NH Kids Count has joined with partners to launch the NH School Breakfast Challenge to promote School Breakfast use in NH.


Below is recent statewide coverage of the importance of school breakfast in NH. Check out the articles to learn more about school breakfast!
