Eat Breakfast at School!

 

Mornings can be really crazy, the alarm doesn’t go off, the kids don’t want to get up, there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes, or they’re just not ready to eat. Or, maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you. Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will energize your child’s day and provide them with a healthy start. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class, and has plenty of vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.

Breakfast at school is affordable, too. If you qualify for free or reduced price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork. You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else.

So help your child start the day right with school breakfast!

 

Desayuno en la Escuela!

 

Las mañanas pueden ser algo difíciles…la alarma no suena…los niños no se quieren levantar…no hay tiempo para desayunar, el bus ya va llegando…o quizás los niños no tienen hambre. O tal vez el joven se lleva un chocolate y una soda para comer en camino a la escuela. Si esto pasa en tu casa, ¡tenemos buenas noticias! ¡Los niños pueden desayunar en la escuela! Sus niños pueden comenzar el día saludablemente al comer el desayuno en la escuela. Un desayuno saludable ayuda a los estudiantes estar más alertos, y así aprender más. El desayuno tiene vitaminas y nutrientes para un cuerpo fuerte y saludable.

Y el desayuno en las escuelas no cuesta mucho. Si ya calificas para comidas gratis o comidas a precio reducido, también calificas para el Programa de Desayunos Escolares, y no tienes que llenar más formularios. No encontrarás un desayuno saludable a tan bajo precio en otro lugar.

¡Ayuda a tu niño a comenzar el día bien con desayunos escolares!
