State supt. issues new school breakfast challenge story image
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State Education Superintendent Mike Flanagan is issuing a new challenge to Michigan schools to get more children a healthy breakfast every day.
   
Flanagan announced the "First Fuel For School" challenge this week as part of National School Breakfast Week. The goal is for at least 60 percent of students in every Michigan school who get a federally reimbursable school lunch to also receive a school breakfast.
   
Flanagan says last year only about half of the students who qualified for free and reduced priced lunches also received a school breakfast.
   
He says breakfast can improve student achievement and help develop healthy eating habits.
   
In 2008, Flanagan launched a challenge to superintendents to increase school breakfast participation. He says during that time nearly 17 million more breakfasts were served to Michigan students.
