School Lunch Program to be provided by Fullerton School District

                    breakfast_logo_final.jpg

We would like to encourage your student to participate in the nutritional BREAKFAST and LUNCH program. 

Mornings can be really crazy!  The alarm doesn’t go off, the kids don’t want to get up, there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes, or they’re just not ready to eat.  It can be hard to get your children to eat a nutritious breakfast or even anything at all.  If this sounds like your home, we have good news for you.

Breakfast is available at some of the Fullerton School District schools!  Take advantage of this option to ensure your child eats a nutritious breakfast. Research consistently shows that children who eat breakfast enjoy very positive effects on academic performance, such as enhanced concentration, greater motivation, higher test scores and fewer behavioral issues.  Take the time to give your children a healthful breakfast and enjoy better grades and happier students.

Breakfast at school is affordable, too.  A full breakfast costs less than convenience store items.  If you qualify for free or reduced-price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program with no additional paperwork.  Take advantage of this opportunity to start the day on the right foot. It also gives you the energy you need to get things done and helps you focus at school.

If you must pay, you’ll find the breakfast price below. No where else will you find a balanced breakfast at such a low price.

School-Lunch.jpg

A good lunch benefits a student by giving him the energy to remain alert during class time.  This is true whether the student is in elementary school, high school or college.  As long as the student avoids a heavy midday meal, which can cause lethargy and sleepiness, a healthy lunch helps maintain peak academic performance.  Make lunch even more beneficial by choosing foods based on their nutritional benefits.

Good choices for a student's lunch include raw vegetables, whole grains and lean meat or other protein sources.  Include a light ranch dressing for vegetable dipping, and fill whole grain breads with protein-packed sunbutter. Also drink plenty of water with lunch.  The National School Lunch Program bases its prescribed meals for schools on the USDA Food Plate guide.  Consulting the Food Plate guide helps inform students about the best diet, including lunches.

The vitamins and nutrients contained in many fruits and vegetables contribute to a stronger immune system, which can mean fewer days of school missed because of illness and therefore better grades.

LUNCH:
Free Eligible Students:         NO CHARGE
Reduced-Price:                    $0.40
Full-Price:                           $2.85 (k-6th)
Junior High:                         $3.00 (7-8th)
