The Antioch Unified School District in California will use state grants to expand breakfast programs at three schools -- launching more grab-and-go programs and adding "second chance" breakfast times, which provides breakfast during recess for students. "Studies have shown time and again that breakfast helps to increase test scores, reduce visits to the school office, be more attentive in class, and improve student behavior," said Stephanie Siemering, director of nutrition and purchasing services for the district.
