Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. Fortunately, Galesburg schools offer nutritious school breakfasts, complete with fruit and low-fat or fat-free milk, to ensure students are fueled for learning every school day. All Galesburg schools offer breakfast daily that comply with the nutritional standards of the National School Breakfast Program. Breakfast is offered at no cost to the students of Galesburg CUSD #205.
We would like to encourage all families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast as we celebrate the National School Breakfast week, March 7-11, 2022.
The NSBW campaign theme, “Take Off with School Breakfast,” reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy and energizing start to the day for students.
Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:
- Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math
- Score higher on standardized tests
- Have better concentration and memory
- Be more alert
- Maintain a healthy weight
Kick start your morning with CUSD #205!
