Eating breakfast at school just a got a little easier for students at Ebner, Logan, and Pleasant Valley Elementary schools with the introduction of Grab N Go Breakfast.
Grab N Go Breakfast makes it convenient for students to take advantage of a healthy start to the day. Upon arrival, students now have the option to grab breakfast on the go and head straight to the classroom. Each Grab N Go breakfast meets all nutritional guidelines. It’s an easy and convenient way to avoid missing breakfast, even if there is just a little time.
Eating a healthy breakfast is important for students. It is linked to improved concentration, better test scores, and increased energy. The benefits to eating breakfast extend beyond the classroom helping students to meet their daily nutritional requirements and develop a healthy lifestyle.
“We want to make sure students have the opportunity to eat breakfast, fill their hungry bellies and fuel their brains for learning,” said Dr. Daloisio, principal at Logan Elementary. The students seem to enjoy the convenience.
Although Grab N Go Breakfast is only currently available at the three elementary schools, breakfast in the cafeteria is available at all Altoona Area schools at a cost of $1.00.
