> Utah School Breakfast and Lunch Program
The School Breakfast Program (SBP) provides children with nutritious foods before their school day begins, thus improving their diets and encouraging the learning process. Schools operating the SBP, report increases in test scores, decreases in absenteeism, and an overall improvement in student behavior when children eat breakfast. Similarly, the School Lunch Program provides nutritious free and reduced price lunches to schoolchildren. The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs are administered by the Utah State Office of Education, Child Nutrition Programs.
