A report from the Food Research and Action Center found that a growing number of students nationwide who are eligible for free and reduced-price meals are eating breakfast at school. Crystal FitzSimons, director of school programs for FRAC, said some of the most successful programs serve students in the classroom. "We call that breakfast in the classroom, or 'grab-and-go' breakfast," she said. "And so, the kids are able to eat with their classmates; they eat while the teacher is taking attendance or doing the first morning lesson. And they're able to start the school day ready to learn, because they've had a healthy breakfast."
