The School Nutrition Association just finished another successful National School Breakfast Week. This year’s theme, “School Breakfast – Go for Gold” helped students understand importance of eating a healthy, balanced, and nutritious school breakfast each day. The campaign was created by SNA with the generous support of General Mills Foodservice.
Jeff Davis County, GA celebrated NSBW with “Buzzy” the mascot introducing a new menu item to students - the “Jacket Scrambler”.
