Give Breakfast A Wake-Up Call!

Help Us Build A Better Future For Kids!
Children who do not eat a nutritious breakfast have a harder time focusing and staying awake in class, which can seriously affect their future educational and professional success. Starting their day with delicious protein like Jennie-O Turkey Bacon and Sausage is a great way to help kids grow and succeed inside and outside the classroom!  
 
Here's How You Can Help:
Cook a nutritious breakfast for children in your community (your child's class, youth group, or sports team, for example), and let us know that you gave breakfast a wake-up call!  Every time you cook a nutritious breakfast for children in your community, let us know at championsforkids.org/share so that we can celebrate your participation and count you towards our goal of mobilizing 20 million people by 2020 to become Champions for Kids!
