National School Breakfast Week

This is National School Breakfast Week:

WASHINGTON — Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns today acknowledged National School Breakfast Week by highlighting the importance of breakfast and the role USDA’s School Breakfast Program plays in the national nutrition assistance
safety net.
"Research shows a connection between starting the day with a
good, nutritious breakfast and improved academic performance," Johanns said. "A
healthy start is key and USDA strives to ensure that every child gets a healthy
breakfast. Our 2007 farm bill proposals would help us to meet that goal by
giving schools greater access to fruits and vegetables."
