We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and a new study shows just how important breakfast is for kids. The study, released by Share Our Strength, an organization Food Network has partnered with to raise money to fight childhood hunger, reveals that of the 21 million U.S. kids that get free or reduced-price school lunch, only a shocking half get breakfast. That means millions of children are starting their day hungry, making it more difficult for them to learn. The study also found that kids who eat school breakfast attend on average 1.5 more days of school, average 17.5% higher on math test scores and are 20% more likely to graduate high school.

Share Our Strength is making breakfast in schools a priority through Breakfast Changes Lives, an initiative in conjunction with the organization’s No Kid Hungry campaign.

Does your child’s school serve breakfast? Help Share our Strength reach their goal of mapping 10,000 schools by March 31st.

Don’t let busy mornings be an excuse to skip breakfast: here are 50 breakfast on the fly ideas that will help your kids start their school day full and hungry to learn.

  2. I do believe that a foreclosed can have a major effect on the debtor’s life. Mortgage foreclosures can have a 6 to a decade negative influence on a applicant’s credit report. A borrower who have applied for a home loan or any kind of loans for that matter, knows that the actual worse credit rating will be, the more difficult it is to acquire a decent loan. In addition, it could possibly affect a borrower’s capability to find a reasonable place to let or rent, if that gets to be the alternative housing solution. Good blog post.
