As Salaamu Aliakum Family!
Did you know that many kids in grades K-12 report that they do not eat breakfast before school? As the school Nutrition Director, I frequently see students in my office who complain of hunger related symptoms such as headaches and stomachaches. No matter what the reason for skipping breakfast, students cannot learn on an empty stomach.
The Mohammed Schools offers breakfast every morning from (7:15) A.M.- (8:00) A.M. This is an excellent opportunity to ensure that your child is receiving a nutritionally balanced meal at the start of each day. Studies have shown that children who eat a nutritious breakfast have better behavior, better attendance, and improved grades. All students are welcome to attend Monday through Friday.

They ask you, [O Muhammad], what has been made lawful for them. Say, “Lawful for you are [all] good foods and [game caught by] what you have trained of hunting animals which you train as Allah has taught you. So eat of what they catch for you, and mention the name of Allah upon it, and fear Allah .” Indeed, Allah is swift in account.

Back to School with Breakfast
The beginning of the school year brings new opportunities for our students to learn, grow, and succeed. Why not give them a leg up by incorporating school breakfast into their morning routine. Having breakfast in the morning has been shown to increase test scores, improve behavior, and result in fewer trips to the school nurse. However, parents don’t always have the time or resources to prepare breakfast for their child before school. Participating in the school breakfast program can help recapture that time, and it can also provide relief to your household budget during these times of rising food costs. So instead of rushing your child through breakfast at home, try sending him or her to school for breakfast instead.
The School Breakfast Program is available to all students every day. Since school breakfasts must meet the USDA’s guidelines for nutrition, you can be confident that your child’s meal will provide the fuel necessary for learning. By taking advantage of this program, your child will receive more than just a nutritious breakfast and an academic advantage; he or she will be healthier as well.
