We have so many great customers and wanted to share a few of our favorite breakfast recipes we received from them in our contest two weeks ago. Reviewing these made us hungry!

We learned the importance of Breakfast from our previous blog post, What is National School Breakfast Week, so here are three fun recipes that encourage students to eat breakfast at school!

These recipes are now available in our global database and can be used by other districts to promote school breakfast.
