Students Taste Test Possible Breakfast Menu Items


MCPS is recognizing National School Breakfast Week, March 4–8!  This week, we celebrate the nutritious breakfast served to students across MCPS, fueling them to learn each day. The Division of Food and Nutrition Services celebrated the week by “Hearing the Crunch” together on Wednesday morning with students at Cannon Road Elementary School. More than 100 students were invited to taste a variety of possible new breakfast items including a breakfast sandwich and blueberry-pomegranant bar.  


 Did you know:

  • DFNS has served over 3.8 million breakfast meals so far this school year. 
  • The cinnamon rolls are the most popular breakfast menu item, and are made from a local bakery in Maryland.
  • Children who participate in school breakfast are more likely to improve their classroom behavior, exhibit improved concentration, comprehension, and memory, and attain higher levels of achievement in reading and math.
  • Netflix released a new season of “Somebody Feed Phil'' on Mar. 1st. In episode two the group visits our very own Loiederman Middle School to chat with students while they get breakfast from a Grab n Go cart.
