MCCARRAN, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Significant progress in Nevada’s effort to reach more low-income children with school breakfast was made, as Nevada served 44.5 low-income children breakfast for every 100 that received lunch during the 2011-2012 school year, according to two new national reports released today.

An increase from the previous school year when only 33.7:100 received breakfast, this progress lays the groundwork for school districts in Nevada to reach even more children with school breakfast this school year and next.

A companion analysis by FRAC, School Breakfast: Making it Work in Large School Districts, examined school breakfast participation and policies in 57 school districts across the country, including Clark County in Nevada, which saw more than a 20 percent increase in children eating breakfast at school, a result specifically tied to their new “breakfast after the bell” policy for targeted schools.
