Child Study Journal, v29 n2 p113-31 1999
Two studies examined nutritional differences between home breakfasts and breakfasts served at preschool following School Breakfast Program guidelines and evaluated nutritional impact of program participation on 4-year olds' preacademic performance. Results indicated that breakfast intake was altered under school breakfast conditions. Performance on a variety of cognitive tasks was significantly better when tested after school breakfast than after home breakfast. (Author/KB)
