Study shows connection between school breakfast and improved math skills

Study conducted as part of Share Our Strength.

Feb. 28—Children who eat breakfast in school do better in math and miss fewer class days, according to a new national study released Wednesday.

"The simple act of feeding kids a healthy school breakfast can have a dramatic impact on their academic, health, and economic futures," the study concluded.

The report was created for Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit working to end childhood hunger in America through its No Kid Hungry campaign.
