Education Week – Rules for Engagement: School Breakfasts Now Served as Widely as Lunches

Maybe the message about the most important meal of the day has finally sunk in: In many school districts, more than 90 percent of schools that serve lunch through the National School Lunch Program now serve breakfast at school, too, new data from the Food Research and Action Center show.

In addition, the report out this week, which looked at how school breakfast programs are operating in 57 large urban and suburban school districts in the 2011-12 school year, found that more than half of all low-income students who ate lunch prepared at school also ate school breakfast.
