Fast break for breakfast 


In basketball, a fast break is a play that moves the ball quickly from one end of the court to the other. It helps a team get a fast start on a scoring play. Try making a fast break for breakfast everyday too! 
Breakfast can help your body get 
started for a "high-scorint day. 
Breakfast is important. When you get up in the morning, it has been about 12 hours since your last meal. If you don't eat again until lunch, it will be nearly six more hours before any new food energy gets into your system. 
Kids and teens can concentrate on 
their schoolwork better when they're not hungry. Studies show that kids do better in school when they eat 
breakfast. Sending a child to school without breakfast is like sending them into a classroom without books. In Kentucky, more than 80% of schools participate in the School Breakfast 
Program. The breakfast offered through the program is designed to provide one-fourth to one ­third of a child's daily nutrient requirements including calories, protein, calcium, and other essential nutrients. When you skip breakfast, it's hard to make up the nutrients you miss. If your child does not participate in a breakfast program, have a MyPlate breakfast at home.
