WESTERN NEW YORK – A new national program is attempting to get students to eat breakfast in the classroom, rather than cafeteria or at home.

The initiative dubbed “Breakfast in the Classroom” is now serving 75 school districts across 26 states.








It’s part of an effort to move school breakfast programs from the cafeteria into the classroom, so more students start their day with a nutritious boost.

Research shows that having breakfast can make a significant difference in a child’s ability to learn. School nutritionists also said the program helps students make healthy choices on their own.









The Food Research and Action Center wants to expand “Breakfast In the Classroom” because they believe it’s not reaching all the students who need it.
