Breakfast is free to ALL students at Houston School District, and starting Monday, Oct. 30, Grab-N-Go breakfast will be available to students at all Houston schools. Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, and research shows it has a great impact on school success. The Grab-N-Go breakfast program is proven to increase the consumption of breakfast. We have seen this increase at Houston High School, which implemented Grab-N-Go in August. We are excited to implement this program district wide.
Some benefits of eating breakfast: *improved academic achievement through improved concentration, comprehension, memory, and learning *better attendance *less tardiness *fewer visits to the school nurse *fewer behavior problems *improved dietary intake and reduced risk of obesity
