My mother and father always told me that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

It helps to provide calories for whatever activities lay ahead for the day.

It breaks the overnight fasting period and helps to boost energy levels and alertness.

Another common phrase I would hear growing up is: “You are what you eat!”

Learning how to make informed food choices and starting to develop healthy eating starts early.

It’s important to eat a variety of nutritious foods every day.

Different ways to achieve this goal are to include food from all food groups, learn to read the nutrition labels on food packaging, and take the time to enjoy your food.

“We at Brevard Public Schools understand the importance of healthy nutritious food for healthy brains and bodies,” Brevard County School Board Chair Misty Belford said. “Our Food and Nutrition Services team work tirelessly to provide great tasting food options that help our students to achieve their best in the classroom, on the field and on the court.”
