Georgia Breakfast Challenge


Begin with Breakfast

The Georgia Department of Education Child Nutrition Programs and the Southeast Dairy Association are challenging school districts to increase breakfast participation by 20 percent.

Georgia’s Fuel Up First with Breakfast Challenge will run September through November 2013. All public, charter and private school districts in Georgia who participate in the National School Breakfast Program will be eligible to compete for cash prizes (breakfast participation must show a 20 percent increase from the same months in 2012).

“Breakfast helps children’s behavior during school and gives them the nourishment they need focus more on their studies,” said Lanna Kirk, United States Department of Agriculture Special Nutrition Programs Director. “If you are hungry during school you can not focus on what is important like math and reading.”
