The best way to increase breakfast participation is by making a breakfast model change that incorporates breakfast into the school day, such as Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC). To help make moving breakfast out of the cafeteria easier, Project Bread has created a two-week cycle menu to help out with at least one facet of the transition: the food. The cycle menu focuses on less messy, handheld items that suit the new environment. It also features very healthy and affordable options and provides a list of sample products you can use to create them. Lastly, realizing that not all schools can do alternative models, we included a two-week-cycle menu for a traditional breakfast model. By combining these resources, we hope we have created a useful guide for offering healthy options through alternative service models. Check it out!
