WASHINGTON, March 5, 2012 – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today marked National School Breakfast Week (March 5-9) by emphasizing the administration’s commitment to provide schoolchildren with healthy, well-balanced meals to prepare them for a productive school day.

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it helps keep kids alert and focused on learning," said Vilsack. "Thanks to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, we will be able to connect more eligible children with our school food programs and greatly improve the quality of meals served in schools."
