Your Day Starts With BreakfastSarah Wood
Curriculum Coordinator

This newsletter corresponds with Lesson 6 of the Show Me Nutrition Fourth Grade curriculum. Starting the day without breakfast can decrease attention span and concentration. Children who eat a healthy breakfast each morning are more likely to do better in school and maintain a healthy weight. This newsletter provides tips on making time for breakfast and an activity to brainstorm tasty and healthy breakfast items. 

Publications numbers for fourth grade newsletters are: N160 (Lesson 1), N161 (Lesson 2), N162 (Lesson 3), N163 (Lesson 4), N164 (Lesson 5), N165 (Lesson 6), N166 (Lesson 7), N167 (Lesson 8), N169 (Lesson 9), N170 (Lesson 10)
