Grab & Go Breakfast
The federal universal breakfast program offers free breakfast to all students at Baldwin Road Junior, French Run, Hannah J. Ashton Middle, Herbert Mills, Rose Hill, Slate Ridge, Summit Road Elementary, Waggoner Road Junior, Waggoner Road Middle, and both the Livingston and Summit campuses of Reynoldsburg High School. Participating schools pass out breakfasts to students on their way into the building, in the cafeteria, or deliver meals to classrooms.
Children who eat breakfast at the start of their school day have higher math and reading scores, have broader vocabularies, and perform better on standardized tests. They focus better, behave better, and are more cooperative and get along better with classmates. Children who eat breakfast are less likely to be absent and less likely to see the school nurse and be overweight.
School breakfasts must meet the applicable recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans which recommend that no more than 30 percent of an individual’s calories come from fat, and less than 10 percent from saturated fat. In addition, breakfasts must provide one‐fourth of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein, calcium, iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and calories.
