La Crosse, WI (WXOW) We've heard time and time again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This week is national school breakfast week. Schools across the country are encouraging students to give school breakfast a try. News 19's Amy DuPont headed to Logan high school to find out how many kids take advantage of the program.
Walk through the Logan cafeteria on any given morning and you're sure to find Andrea Roths. The high school junior is one of the nearly 300 Logan students who eat school breakfast every day.
"We have a pretty regular group of kids that come in. They let us know when they like and don't like." says nutrition manager Deb Talle. Deb makes sure students head to class satisfied. "It's sort of like a restaurant, only better."
Deb says school breakfast is popular because it tastes good and its inexpensive. For just $1.60 students receive a carton of milk, fruit, and an entree.
It's also convenient. Logan offers breakfast from 7 until 10 each morning. So if a student is running late, she can grab a bite to eat between her morning classes.
Andrea eats school breakfast because she likes the menu and because eating school breakfast is part of her morning routine. "There is just a better variety at school if I can't find something at home." She leaves the cafeteria full and ready to focus on school.
The Logan breakfast menu changes daily. Deb says the most popular items are biscuits and gravy followed by cinnamon rolls.
