Survey Says:  Breakfast After the Bell “Do-Able”

A survey of nearly 300 New Jersey school officials found that districts with successful breakfast programs were able to easily meet the challenges of serving breakfast during the first few minutes of the school day.

Officials in these districts also said students and schools benefited when more children began their day with a healthy meal.

The survey was conducted by the NJ Food for Thought School Breakfast Campaign and Advocates for Children of New Jersey.
