Who We Are
Did you know that children who eat breakfast have better focus, miss less school, have higher grades and test scores, and are more likely to have a lower body mass index than children who skip breakfast? Despite knowing these facts, Nebraska continues to rank very low in school breakfast participation.
Go Big Breakfast is a part of the Nebraska Student Nutrition Action Committee (SNAC), which was formerly the Go Big Breakfast coalition. Because of COVID-19, the coalition expanded its focus from just breakfast to school breakfast, school lunch, the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and Provision 2, the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) At Risk After School meals, and Farm-to-School.

Go Big Breakfast and its goals remain a focus of the Nebraska SNAC. Making breakfast a seamless part of the school day can have a huge impact on students’ health and academic success.
