The Healthy Breakfast, Healthy Future article by Kevin W. Concannon showed up in our Facebook stream a few days ago and prompted conversation about school breakfast programs, along with their impact on students. Whether you identify yourself as Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or Independent, making sure kids are being fed adequately sparks emotion on some level or another. And regardless of the politics, it’s hard to deny the feeling of distraction or grumpiness when you get hungry, which must only be amplified as a child. So read the article and generate an opinion. Then give us your feedback.
What do you think about the number of participants rising by 24 percent to 14 million since 2008? Any concern with the elimination of household applications and enrollment in order to be eligible for free school breakfast and lunch? Leave your comments below and weigh in on the conversation.
