 National School Breakfast Week was held March 7-11 in schools across the country, and AASA’s school breakfast grantees were no exception. They had a lot of fun enticing activities, encouraging students to try new foods and taste test breakfast – in the cafeterias, in classrooms, and places in between. Here are some shining examples.

  The mayor of Hinesville, Georgia, Allen Brown, issued a proclamation to the Liberty County School System in honor of National School Breakfast Week.  Meriden Public Schools (Conn.) held a “school breakfast Fear Factor” – despite the fact that young students had never heard of the TV show that went off the air in 2006. Students tried new breakfast products in front of the entire school!   In Hempstead Union Free School District (N.Y.), Julius the Tiger was out and about visiting elementary schools. Julius encourages children to eat breakfast, and even Superintendent Susan Johnson eats breakfast under Julius’ good influence.
