Officials in a Tennessee school district say a new free breakfast program that will last through the end of the school year has nearly doubled in the number of elementary-school students eating breakfast at school. The free, universal breakfast program also is being piloted for 60 days at one middle school and two elementary schools. Lisa Holt, nutrition manager for the county system, said school breakfast programs have been shown to improve students' test scores and keep them healthier.
