The Arizona Nutrition Network (AzNN) is a public and private partnership led by the Arizona Department of Health's Bureau of USDA Nutrition Programs which partners with the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension. The AzNN provides common nutrition messages using the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and ChooseMyPlate.gov to persons who are Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program) participants or whose income falls within the eligible guidelines for the SNAP program.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The whole family should be encouraged to eat breakfast. Breakfast gives you energy, makes you feel better, keeps you from getting hungry later in the morning, and helps you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Children who eat breakfast do better in school. Children may be able to get breakfast at school – check with the school food service to find out if it is available in your area.
