Students Can “Score Big” with School Breakfast
National School Breakfast Week Campaign Encourages Students to Try School Breakfast
To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast, Pitt County Schools will celebrate National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) during March 8-12, 2021. Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. Fortunately, Pitt County Schools offer nutritious school breakfasts, complete with fruit and low-fat or fat-free milk, to ensure students are fueled for learning every school day. The NSBW campaign theme, “Score Big with School Breakfast,” reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy and energizing start to the day for students.
