RSD Celebrates National School Breakfast Week

National School Breakfast Week is an annual celebration to raise awareness about the availability of the School Breakfast Program (SBP), which Redmond School District serves at every school each morning.

This year’s theme, “Take Time for School Breakfast,” encourages parents to consider the school breakfast program as a time-saving option for busy mornings.  Redmond School District’s Nutrition Services department has planned several activities to celebrate the week across the district. Nutrition Services will be debuting a new “Continental Bar,” that features extra protein options that students can add to their breakfast entrée at every school.  In addition, at our elementary and community schools, there will be a daily prize giveaway during breakfast times at each school.

Three Celebrity Breakfasts have been planned for students at John Tuck Elementary, M.A. Lynch Elementary and Terrebonne Community School.  Local celebrities like Superintendent McIntosh, Mayor George Endicott and KTVZ News Anchor Alicia Inns will eat breakfast with students and talk about the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast!

School Breakfast offers several benefits, including:

– SBP meals meet federal dietary guidelines.

– It’s a healthy and affordable way for kids to start the day.

– There is an established link between eating breakfast and academic success.

– Eating a nutritious breakfast can help kids maintain a healthy weight. In today’s climate of heightened awareness around childhood obesity, this is a great benefit to offer at school.

We encourage you to incorporate creative conversations about breakfast with your children at home.  If you would like education resources about National School Breakfast Week or have questions please contact Nutrition Services at 541-923-8230.
