National Breakfast Week – March 5-9, 2012

March 5th, 2012

The Cherokee County Child Nutrition Program invites you to check out the USDA’s “My Plate” visual on the USDA Website and use it as a guide to a Healthy Diet. “Diet” is not a dirty word. A diet is nothing more than what you eat. Make sure that you are following the “My Plate” guidelines as you make healthy food choices for you/your family.

Cherokee County Schools are celebrating National School Breakfast Week Monday through Friday of this week. We encourage you to ensure that you/your child eats breakfast at home each day or joins us in the cafeteria for a nutritious school breakfast. One study revealed that students participating in school breakfast programs achieved significantly higher test scores, reduced absence and tardy rates and reduced discipline problems.
