What is National School Breakfast Week?

The annual celebration was launched in 1989 to raise awareness about the availability of the School Breakfast Program (SBP). 
NSBW is scheduled for March 7-11, 2016
The School Breakfast Program significantly improves the cognitive abilities and learning capacities of children. Low-income children who receive school breakfast do better on a variety of indicators than low-income peers who go without breakfast. Significantly, the better outcomes associated with school breakfast include educational preparedness (attendance, energy, alertness, memory) and educational outcome measurements (math scores, grades, reading ability).
