The National Food Service Management Institute (NFSMI) will conduct a satellite seminar called "School Breakfast: A Smart Way to Start the Day" on Thursday, October 30. There will be two viewings of this seminar, the first from 2-3 p.m. and the second from 4-5 p.m.

Starting the day without breakfast is like starting the car with a low battery -- it may stall! A good breakfast jump-starts the brain and provides the energy growing children need to get their day started. Children who eat a nutritious breakfast are more alert, are better able to concentrate, show more creativity, have more energy, and perform better on school tests than chidren who do not eat breakfast.

NFSMI invites all child nutrition personnel including food service assistants, managers, directors and state agency staff to view the satellite seminar. School administrators and teachers are encouraged to participate as well.

All of the needed information for this seminar is found on the following web site: The program will be available as a WEBCAST to be watched on a computer. Type the above link, scroll down to Webcast, click on simultaneous webcast, and follow the directions. Visit this site as soon as possible to get familiar with the site.

For questions, contact Jerry Swope at the Child Nutrition Office 501-324-9502.
