Abstract

Welcome to Public Health Moment from the University of Minnesota. This is National School Breakfast Week, a campaign to educate students and families about the importance of breakfast and the benefits of the National School Breakfast Program. The federal program began in 1960s as a pilot project to provide free breakfast to children from low-income families. It became permanent in 1975. University of Minnesota nutritionist Jamie Stang tells us more. <Clip: “So, the free or reduced-priced breakfast…and overall just have a better school environment.”>Stang says that studies have shown that children who regularly eat a healthy breakfast are less likely to become overweight or obese. <Clip: “Several recent studies have shown that…what we use to assess whether a child is overweight or not.”> With another Public Health Moment, I’m John Finnegan.
