Archdiocese of New York Celebrates ‘Breakfast in the Classroom’ at St. Paul’s School

As part of Dairy Council Health Foundation’s Fuel Up to Play 60 school wellness program, Archdiocese of New York is increasing student access to good nutrition by serving Breakfast in the Classroom - a Breakfast After the Bell program. Serving students their breakfast in classrooms, instead of the cafeteria, ensures that all students start the day with a healthy meal to fuel academic success. A grant from LIDS Foundation, obtained by Dairy Council Health Foundation for Archdiocese of New York, enabled Ascension and St. Paul’s schools in New York City to begin serving Breakfast in the Classroom.

“Habits that you guys create as young children are the ones that are going to be with you for the rest of your lives,” Toomer told the St. Paul’s students. View more photos.

Archdiocese of New York is committed to providing a nutritious morning meal to all students. With support from a $5,000 grant from LIDS through Dairy Council Health Foundation, Archdiocese purchased insulated bags to deliver breakfast to classrooms. Of all the steps schools can take toward creating healthier, higher-achieving students and a culture of wellness, implementing programs that increase access to breakfast is one of the simplest and the most cost effective. Studies show that children who eat breakfast at school have higher math and verbal fluency scores, and perform better on standardized tests.
