Schools that provide breakfast to all students have shown decreases in tardiness and suspensions, as well as improved student behavior and attentiveness.  Better With Breakfast! Not just for testing anymore!

All kids benefit from starting the day with a healthy breakfast. Research shows that kids who eat breakfast regularly tend to be more alert in school, and, therefore, are able to learn better. They also are less likely to be overweight than kids who skip breakfast regularly.  
At HVS our School Breakfast meal numbers have increased annually.  A healthy breakfast is not just for testing days!  
Our school breakfasts must meet one-fourth of a child's daily need for protein, calcium, iron, vitamins A and C, and calories, in accordance with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. While types of food vary somewhat, because these specific nutritional guidelines must be met, children can expect a dairy choice such as low-fat or fat-free milk or yogurt; 100-percent juice or fruit and/or vegetable; a grain- or whole grain-based product such as cereal, toast or waffles; and sometimes hot options such as eggs or meat or meat alternative.  Hard Boiled eggs and cheese sticks may be offered as well.
Why Skip Out on Breakfast?
All households have their reasons. In some cases, getting kids up and out the door on time takes all the energy mom or dad can muster at that hour of the day. Perhaps others may have financial issues that make obtaining nutritious food a challenge. And there may be kids who, like many adults, just find it difficult to eat first thing in the morning.
The Good News At HVS
Huron Valley School participates in the USDA's School Breakfast Program, a program modeled after the National School Lunch Program to provide nutritious breakfasts to all students, regardless of income. A paid breakfast at HVS is $1.25 for elementary students and $1.50 for middle and high school students.
Huron Valley Schools is currently piloting breakfast programs for students that increase availability and decrease barriers to a healthy breakfast:  Breakfast in the Classroom, Second Chance Breakfast and Grab & Go Breakfasts.
