What you offer for breakfast can have a big impact on your school breakfast program and can depend on:

  • compliance with federal and state regulations
  • cost of food
  • cost and time to prepare the food
  • seasonality
  • students taste and preference
  • storage of food
  • nutrition quality (how ‘healthy’ a food is or is perceived to be)
