The need for food security initiatives and programs has been in high demand and continues to soar as economic uncertainty persists worldwide, especially among children. In the face of this pressing issue, Breakfast Club of Canada (BCC), a non-profit organization, exists to help children across Canada access a nutritious breakfast every morning.
Since 1994, Breakfast Club of Canada has been working with partners from all sectors to help children access a nutritious breakfast and reach their full potential. Working collectively with others to achieve their mission, BCC helps reach more than 580, 000 children in over 3,500 school nutrition programs nationwide. The Club ensures that meals include food choices from all three categories of Canada’s Food Guide: fruits and vegetables, whole grains and proteins. Their programs help ensure every child has access to a nutritious breakfast and an equal chance to thrive.
There are many reasons children may not eat breakfast in the morning; however, the power of a nutrient-dense breakfast is often overlooked. The benefits of eating a healthy meal before or at school are proven and can be observed through enhanced mood, health, and academic performance. It can improve learning capabilities, alleviate hunger and help in generating a sense of belonging and making healthy choices independently. Furthermore, the impacts of breakfast programs are huge for children and generate positive changes in school communities and our society. By working together, we can help fuel the next generation and help children access a nutritious breakfast.
