Healthy School Breakfast? How Notable!

Written by John on November 13th, 2009

One of our more rewarding endeavors is a partnership with a company trying to transform school breakfast.  Obviously this is no easy task, but with reams of data pointing to the importance of breakfast and reports exposing the empty calories masquerading as breakfast in many schools it’s a fight worth fighting. (Read about breakfast in Chicago Public Schools http://www.chicagotribune.com/health/chi-cps-breakfast-nov05,0,209332.story?obref=obnetwork).

Notables® by Mission Nutrition, creates a grab ‘n go breakfast that kids eat at their desk.  There are NO TABLES involved (get it?).  Each Notables breakfast, when paired with milk, exceeds the minimum federal School Breakfast Program nutrition requirements by pairing shelf-stable whole grain foods and fruit products in a fun bag. 

They are committed to offering only the highest quality foods in a convenient, kid-friendly manner…which is where we come in.  Notables is currently using specially formulated Oatmeal on the Run bars in two of their bags, meaning kids get all the nutrition of a bowl of instant oatmeal right at their desks.

Our teams are busy looking for other healthy ways for kids to eat and will update you with our progress.  In the meantime, make sure your kids start their day with a notable breakfast…no matter where they eat.
