A push is under way in Minnesota to increase the number of students eating breakfast at school, with supporters saying such efforts would help students learn and improve the local economy. "It could be a grab-and-go model for high schools or middle schools where, as they come in off the buses, they're grabbing a breakfast and then they're eating it at their lockers," said Jason Langworthy, outreach coordinator at Children's Defense Fund Minnesota, "or having breakfast delivered to first-period classes so that students are eating and continuing that curriculum time."
