SCHOOL BREAKFAST - A HEALTHY CHOICE
School breakfast is here for everyone!
Its easy! Instead of running around in the morning trying to make sure your children eat a healthy meal, let us do the work. They can get a great breakfast at school, and there will be no dishes for you to wash!
Some mornings, it’s tough to find the time to make sure your kids are eating a nutritious breakfast. On those days, why not send them to the School Breakfast Program? Each meal meets government nutritional guidelines and standards. Schools are required to provide a breakfast meal that supplies at least ¼ of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein, calcium, iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and calories.
School BreakfastStudents who eat a good breakfast tend to perform better in school, have better attendance, and exhibit fewer behavior problems. Students who eat a good breakfast develop healthy eating habits and visit the school nurse less frequently.
The Shapleigh School is actively participating in Fuel Up To Play 60, a program sponsored by the National Football League and the National Dairy Council. Students are logging in their physical activity and healthy eating habits daily. Former NFL great Troy Brown encouraged our students to follow these incentives!
The Kittery School Department encourages families to apply for free and reduced priced meals. Students approved for free meals will receive free breakfast and lunch. Students approved for reduced priced meals receive a free breakfast and lunch is .40 cents.
