SCHOOL BREAKFAST - A HEALTHY CHOICE
 School breakfast for everyone!

 Its easy! Instead of running around in the morning trying to make sure your children eat a healthy meal, let us do the work. They can get a great breakfast at school, and there will be no dishes for you to wash! 

Some mornings, it’s tough to find the time to make sure your kids are eating a nutritious breakfast. On those days, why not send them to the School Breakfast Program? Each meal meets government nutritional guidelines and standards.  Schools are required to provide a breakfast meal that supplies at least ¼ of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein, calcium, iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and calories.              


               SHAPLEIGH BREAKFAST CART

Students who eat a good breakfast tend to perform better in school, have better attendance, and exhibit fewer behavior problems. Students who eat a good breakfast develop healthy eating habits and visit the school nurse less frequently.

             


                                   EVENTS
    The Kittery Schools Leadership Team strongly supports the Nutrition Program and participates in events!

The Shapleigh School actively participates in Fuel Up To Play 60, a program sponsored by the National Football League and the National Dairy Council. Students are logging in their physical activity and healthy eating habits daily. Former NFL great Troy Brown encouraged our students to follow these incentives!

MAINE SCHOOL HARVEST WEEK

Maine's annual harvest lunch week promotes fresh, local food in school  cafeterias and teaches our children and youth where food comes  from – including local farms, gardens and greenhouses. 

    

         
Holly delivers tomatoes from Greenlaw Gardens in Kittery. Students husked corn at Mitchell and Shapleigh.  Chef David and Farmer Erica cooked street corn picked fresh at Riverside Farm in No. Berwick. Students also enjoyed apples and peaches from Giles Family Farm in Alfred. Shapleigh had omelets to order with eggs from our own Mr. Roth (Music Teacher) and New Roots Farm.
