Help Students Become “Breakfast Heroes” by Taking off with School Breakfast Everyday
BY GREG SZKLANY AMERICAN DAIRY ASSOCIATION NORTH EAST
Get ready to “Take off with School Breakfast” this year when National School Breakfast Week is celebrated March 7-11! This year’s theme not only serves as a reminder that a balanced school breakfast provides the fuel that energizes students to “take off” for an extraordinary day ahead, but also to recognize the amazing school nutrition professionals who continue to work tirelessly, demonstrating that not all heroes wear capes.
American Dairy Association North East partners with renowned chefs to develop new recipes and works with schools to help implement them on the menu to generate excitement amongst students. Hot Chocolate Milk has been extremely popular during the winter months, while other creations such as yogurt parfaits and smoothies have become constant offerings on many school menus.
Membership Renewal Season!!
IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!
Now is a great time to encourage students to become “Breakfast Heroes” by asking them to make a pledge to start each morning with a healthy breakfast – one that’s filled with milk or other dairy items to help fuel them up for the day ahead. American Dairy Association North East is excited to help schools to find new and innovative ways to increase student access to nutritious school meals. For more information on our programs and resources, please contact us at schools@ milk4u.org or visit AmericanDairy.com .
In this ever-changing environment, it’s challenging for students to find time for a healthy breakfast outside of school. Fortunately, schools offer nutritious school breakfasts – complete with milk and other dairy items such as yogurt and cheese – along with fruits and grains.

Together, we can serve up breakfast to more students. American Dairy Association North East provides resources and solutions for schools to help build student participation. One way to increase school breakfast participation is through alternative meal models that make breakfast more convenient and accessible to more students with programs such as Breakfast After the Bell .
