Universal Breakfast Programs in Public Schools
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The School Breakfast Program allows schools to provide breakfast to students at free and reduced costs in an attempt to provide nutritious meals for low-income students. Nationwide, during the 2006-2007 school year, the School Breakfast Program served less than half of the low-income students eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Universal Breakfast Programs that provide free meals to all students, regardless of income, are a policy alternative that will reach more students and provide them with several academic and health benefits.
