Step Up Forsyth Week 4 Challenge - Eat Breakfast Every Day!

Eating a healthy breakfast every day will lead to a more nutritionally complete diet that is higher in vitamins, minerals and other key nutrients. Eating a healthy breakfast is also associated with better weight management, lower cholesterol levels, and greater strength and endurance to engage in a physically active lifestyle.

For children, studies show that kids who miss breakfast don't do as well in school and are tardy more often. Breakfast eaters also have better hand-eye coordination and verbal fluency. The Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools participate in the School Breakfast and Lunch program, a federal program that provides nutritionally balanced breakfasts to children each school day.
