    I can't concentrate at work when I'm hungry. How do we expect hungry children to learn math problems or improve reading skills? This is the most common-sense education policy ever. Hands down!

    It is not only important for kids to eat breakfast but to eat a nutritious one. Too often have I witnessed kids in food deserts eat unhealthy snack foods like MSG-laden Hot Cheetos early in the morning. While they have more energy they are often too inattentive to function. Here's to a commitment to ensuring not only that no kids is left hungry but that no kid is left without a nutritious breakfast.

      Thank you for your comment Njambi. Absolutely agree. Access to healthy, nutritious food is critical to the learning process and children's health.
