National School Breakfast Week might be over, but Boston Public Schools is still serving up breakfast for FREE every day in all Boston Public Schools!  Last week, in celebration of National School Breakfast Week, Whitson’s Culinary Group’s Heidi the Hyenna, Luke the Lion and Ranger Ray visited around 30 classrooms across 4 schools, to talk to students about the importance of eating a healthy breakfast every day.

So come on into school a little earlier and have breakfast with us everyday!


This Thursday 3/7/13 all Boston Public Schools will feature Minneolas for breakfast in celebration of National School Breakfast Week.


What is a Minneola?

– Minneolas are a unique citrus fruit that are seasonally available during the winter months

– Minneolas, also known as Honeybells for their bell-like shape, are a hybrid between a grapefruit and a tangerine

– These citrus fruits are a good source of Dietary Fiber and an excellent source of Folate and Vitamin C

This easy to peel fruit has been well received in 27 schools through the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program this year, so we wanted to make them available to more students!

So come to school on Thursday and try a Minneola for Breakfast!


Join us in celebrating National School Breakfast Week! 

Did you know breakfast is FREE for all Boston Public Schools students?! Since the beginning of this school year, we have been serving up a variety of delicious, healthy breakfast items every day for students, for FREE!  So come on into school a little earlier this week and enjoy breakfast with us!
