Dairy Association honors Mouton, LCSD

All Liverpool elementary schools to have universal breakfast program beginning March 1

The American Dairy Association and Dairy Council recently honored Liverpool Central School District Board of Education President Patricia Mouton with the Universal Breakfast Champion Award during a special visit at Chestnut Hill Elementary.

The ADADC honored Mouton because of her support of the universal breakfast program and because she knows that good nutrition goes hand in hand with learning.

"We in Liverpool are very proud of what this program does for our students," Mouton said.

Representatives from the ADADC were on hand to observe CHE's universal breakfast program, which began in 2004.

"Liverpool realizes that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and does everything it can to make it available for its children," said Florence Selin, ADADC Child Nutrition Services Consultant.

As of March 1, all 10 LCSD elementary schools will offer the Universal Breakfast program to their students.

"Study after study has shown that eating breakfast makes for better cognitive performance throughout the day and less weight gain over time," said LCSD Director of Food Service Carrie Bonacci.
