03/04/13 - First Fuel For School

Children who eat breakfast in school do better in math and miss fewer class days, according to a new national study released last week. The study analyzed national demographic data to learn that children who eat school breakfast score an average of 17.5 percent higher on math tests. Also, students who eat school breakfast attend class an average of 1.5 days more per year. The report found that the combination of higher attendance and increased math scores means kids who eat school breakfast are 20 percent more likely to graduate high school.
