Meeting the New Breakfast Challenge

November 20, 2013 – When your motivation is high, but your inspiration is lacking, turn to A Fresh Start for School Breakfast, a special menu-planning guide produced by SNA in partnership with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The guide offers two-week cycle menus for breakfast in the classroom, grab ‘n’ go and traditional cafeteria breakfast programs. Nutrient analyses are included for all suggested menus.

The suggested menus meet the new breakfast meal pattern requirements that are now being implemented over the course of the next two school years. The cycle menus span across all grade levels, and separate analyses were completed for each of the K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 menus.

The effort to meet the new requirements is expected to be difficult for many school nutrition operators, so A Fresh Start for School Breakfast is designed to help ease the transition by providing student-friendly menu ideas that can fit into any style of breakfast service. Don’t feel pressured to reinvent the wheel when it comes to providing a nutritious, delicious breakfast for students!
