UISD promotes National Breakfast Week
LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) – One local school district is educating its students on the importance of starting the day off with a healthy breakfast.
UISD will be joining the Texas Department of Agriculture in showcasing National School Breakfast Week from March 5th to the 9th.
The district says the state has some helpful guidelines to make sure its students have a proper healthy and well balanced diet during school.
Ana Gutierrez with UISD says, “There’s a lot of regulations that the Texas Department of Agriculture has on the district, on every district in Texas, to make sure that we offer grains, we offer fruits, make sure we offer a healthy, balanced meal.”
Officials say one of the main reasons they offer a healthy breakfast is so students can concentrate and reduce the chance of them going to the nurse’s office.
