National Breakfast Week

On Tuesday we celebrated National Breakfast Week.  Julian Pathways secured a grant for the school district from Action for Healthy Kids in order to promote the eating of breakfast, and we used it to provide a free breakfast to every child at the elementary and junior high. To make it a festive event, we all ate in the garden!

The chains were made from seed catalogues by the children

Centerpieces were paper roses, made from seed catalogues, by 3rd and 4th grade students last week in garden class.

Eat your breakfast!

Student musicians played on the gazebo “stage”….

Last week during garden class, I worked with the fifth graders to write “breakfast haiku.” Students read their poems in-between the musical presentations.

Twelve lucky kids had heart stickers on their breakfast bags….

…which meant they got to return to the garden at lunch to ride the “blender bike” and enjoy their own pedal-powered smoothies!
