Fulton County school breakfast programs help kids eat healthy

FULTON COUNTY -- The American Association of School Administration has awarded a grant to Fulton County Schools, in which the funds will help kids eat healthy breakfasts before their school days begin. 

"Breakfast in the Classroom" will be implemented in Mimosa Elementary and Woodland Elementary. By having the program in those schools, students will be provided with a low-cost bagged breakfast from the cafeteria. They can then eat the breakfast in their classrooms before school starts.

Six middle schools will offer "Grab-n-Go' breakfasts along with four high schools. Those schools include Holcomb Bridge, McNair, Paul D. West, Ridgeview, Sandtown and Woodland Middle, along with Creekside, McClarin, Tri-Cities and Westlake High. Similar to "Breakfast in the Classroom," the "Grab-n-Go" program allows students to take a bagged breakfast from the cafeteria and portable kiosks in the school.. They can eat the meals before school.

The primary goal of the two programs is the provide students with a route to healthy eating in the morning. Each bagged breakfast will be a nutritious meal. 

"School breakfast not only supports student health and academic success, but also is a great value and a huge convenience for busy families," Alyssia Wright, executive director of the School Nutrition Program in Fulton County Schools said. 

At all schools participating, breakfast will range from $1.05 - $1.20 per meal.
