Let’s Do the Math

If you could do one thing that would encourage better attendance, improve behavior and enhance academic importance, would you? It’s actually quite simple: ensure that every child that walks through the door starts the day off right with a healthy breakfast. According to the No Kid Hungry Campaign, students are coming to school too hungry to learn, with only 11 out of 21 million free and reduced children eating breakfast in the morning¹. The results are staggering when breakfast is introduced in schools and classrooms as part of a district’s meal program: kids who eat breakfast miss 1.5 less days of school, average 17.5% higher math test scores, are 20% more likely to graduate and earn an average of $10,000 more annually¹. The National School Breakfast Program is a great way to serve students a healthy meal before class even starts. Together, we can ensure that all of your students begin their day with a nutritious breakfast, ready to learn.


How does Whitsons ensure students start their day off right with a healthy breakfast? We work with the district to offer a variety of breakfast options based on each school’s needs:


bullet   Grab and Go Breakfast. A full breakfast can be pre-packaged in a bag for students as they exit their school buses and enter through a designated breakfast door.


bullet  Breakfast in the Classroom. Pre-assembled breakfasts can also be ready for pick-up or delivery for service in the classroom. Menus for the week are provided in advance, so students know what breakfast is available when they arrive.

bullet   Continental Breakfast in the Cafe. We can offer a full service breakfast in the cafe serving a rotating menu of cold breakfast favorites, such as whole grain cereals, whole grain bagels and rolls, etc., along with the appropriate side components, such as milk and fruit or juice.


bullet   Hot Breakfast Options. We can also offer another option which will feature both a full hot breakfast and cold alternatives daily.

We’ve got the facts—and the solutions.
