Energize Your Day with School Breakfast Webinar .

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) began the rollout of updated nutrition standards for the School Breakfast Program at the start of the 2013-14 school year. In recognition of the important role breakfast plays in every child's day, the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition (PCFSN) is highlighting the many benefits of eating a school breakfast as part of its back to school campaign. Together, we are coordinating efforts to ensure that the message reaches as many parents, students, school officials, and community leaders as possible. We cannot accomplish this task alone and invite you to learn more about our recent activities and see where they might complement your own.

The new standards will allow schools to offer healthier snack foods for our children, while limiting junk food served to students. Students will still be able to buy snacks that meet common-sense standards for fat, saturated fat, sugar, and sodium, while promoting products that have whole grains, low fat dairy, fruits, vegetables or protein foods as their main ingredients.
