---- — ELDON — To garner increased participation in the School Breakfast Program, Cardinal Elementary School will recognize National School Breakfast Week, which is slated for March 3-7.

National School Breakfast Week is a weeklong celebration aimed at increasing awareness of the School Breakfast Program among students and parents.

The 2014 National School Breakfast Week theme, “Take Time for School Breakfast,” encourages parents to consider the school breakfast program as a time-saving option for those busy mornings. The theme will appear in school cafeterias throughout the week.

On Monday, Cardinal Elementary will be inviting moms to eat breakfast with their students. On Wednesday, dads are invited to eat breakfast with their students.

Every school day, Cardinal School District’s breakfast program offers students a healthy breakfast that they need to get set for a busy school day. Eating a proper breakfast helps students prepare for a day of learning. Every school breakfast served meets federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories and sodium.
