Landing Elementary School participated in New York State Education Department’s “Think Breakfast !” Nutrition Program, which provides educators, children and families with resources to teach the importance of eating a healthy breakfast and getting daily physical activity. These practices develop lifelong healthy habits that contribute to future achievement and success. 

Students were taught about and discussed the importance of eating proteins with every meal and adding a variety of fruits and vegetables to one’s diet. The “Think Breakfast!” program not only emphasized the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, but it also provided a take-home booklet with various activities, delicious recipes and a “Think Breakfast!” pencil, to remind students to bring these lessons home and into their daily routines throughout their lives.
