Have you heard about the Kellogg’s Share Breakfast movement? Kellogg’s, the world’s leading provider of cereal, has partnered with actor Taye Diggs to make a difference in the lives of children in need. Did you know that 1 in 5 kids may go without breakfast each day? 1 in 5! That number is mind boggling to me. What it means is that there are probably children in your neighborhood, on the bus with your child, and sitting in your child’s classroom, hungry.
The Share Breakfast movement is important to Diggs. When his father died, he had to step up to help his mom care for his four younger siblings. His mom was a teacher, so he was raised knowing that a wholesome breakfast was imperative for children to reach their full potential. Check out this short video with Taye Diggs:
In-school breakfast partner, Action For Healthy Kids®, has teamed up with Kellogg’s and Taye Diggs to make it their mission to help kids reach their full potential by sharing with them the importance of a healthy breakfast. As a mom, I know the importance of children eating breakfast. I know my kids are more alert and able to focus when they have eaten a healthy meal in the morning. I’ve also seen the power of breakfast in my church’s outreach program, where we go into lower-income neighborhoods to try to help by improving the lives of the people living there. We clean up the neighborhood, mend fences, hand out clothing and food, and always serve breakfast. The smiles on the faces of the children we feed are priceless!
