Did you know that only 44 percent of Americans eat breakfast every day? Yet 93 percent of Americans believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What a disconnect! All the more reason to celebrate breakfast week with your students.
Learning ZoneXpress has added two free activities to FreeMyPlate to help parents, teachers and nutritionists celebrate National School Breakfast Week and Nutrition Month. Both activities encourage students to eat a healthy breakfast every day.
The first activity, “Colorful Breakfast Collages,” combines art and breakfast; it's great for a classroom or home setting.
The second activity, “Design a Breakfast Ad,” targets middle and high school students and would be perfect for a FACS classroom activity. It encourages them to create a healthy breakfast campaign for their school breakfast program.
Both activities are great ways to start a conversation about the importance of a healthy breakfast.
