Students who eat breakfast at school score about 17.5% higher on math tests than their peers who do not, have better attendance and are 20% more likely to graduate from high school, according to a national study. "The study [identifies] important linkages between feeding kids and academic success," said Josh Wachs, chief strategy officer at Share Our Strength, which released the study. "It shows that ending child hunger isn't just the right thing to do, but the smart thing, because it's an investment in our nation's future."
