Take Time For School Breakfast

The majority of Americans feel breakfast is important, but hectic mornings make it difficult to fit the meal in every day. In fact, 40 percent of moms say that their child does not eat breakfast daily, according to Kellogg’s Breakfast in America survey.

Numerous studies show that eating breakfast is essential to children’s ability to learn, stay healthy, focus and behave in school. March 3-7 Nutrition Services will be celebrating National School Breakfast Week.  Stop by your school cafeteria before school to have some breakfast and get ready for the day.  The breakfast menu can be found here . New items are being added to our menu. Stop by and join the fun.

On March 3, West Des Moines Nutrition Department will be acknowledging Dr. Seuss with a lunch in honor of his birthday.  Join us for One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Orange Fish and our take on Green Eggs and Ham.  Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
