Snack for the Morning Break

Help me give my students healthy snacks to make their morning go better!

My Students

We are Title I school located in Arizona. We have a diverse population with a lot of different needs.

With an early start to the day, and a late lunch, my students go a long time every day without food.

This makes teaching and learning difficult around 10am every morning.

I am hoping to provide them with non sugar snacks every morning to ease their hunger and keep them focused on the lessons of the morning without stomach hunger pains.

My Project

We are a Title I school with a diverse population. Some kids eat breakfast at home, some kids take advantage of a school breakfast, and some students come to class hungry. Regardless of whether or not they ate at 7:30 am or earlier, our class time runs from 7:45 in the morning all the way to a late lunch of 12 pm. That is a long way to go for the kids that ate early and even longer to go for the students that didn't. I can see a lag in the classroom at around 10 am. If I do a recess break, and a bit of a snack, then they have the energy and focus to do better from 10:30-12.
