In the unprecedented era of modified learning, student nutrition should be a top consideration for academic success, particularly for students who are eligible for free and reduced-price meals. We know students who eat breakfast and lunch are more attentive and focused.
Are you setting your students up for success?
Join Dr. Robert Murray, MD and Milk Means More in a discussion on childhood nutrition and how high-quality nutrition impacts learning. Utilizing the Whole School, Whole Child, Whole Community model, Dr. Murray will explore the factors that impact child development from birth, including the role of proper nutrition. School meals, including a serving of dairy, play a critical role in the growth of a child as they are designed to meet and fill common nutrient gaps. Learn the impact that school breakfast has on academic achievement, attention and behavior. Additionally, Dr. Murray will explore the value of physical activity, play and sleep in the learning experience.

Don’t forget to celebrate National School Breakfast week March 8th to 12th. This year’s theme is “Score Big with School Breakfast.” With many students still learning virtually, this may be a great opportunity to engage students and families via social media – post a photo of school meals at home with hashtags to connect students, parents and teachers virtually!
