Breakfast for Learning E-Newsletter: November 2014
A LASTING IMPACT
We recently received the following letter from a secondary
school teacher and wanted to share it with you.
It is stories like this that show the true impact of what your support is
accomplishing across Canada each school day. Thanks to you, thousands of children and youth are
receiving the nourishment they need to fuel their bodies and minds.
“Dear Breakfast for Learning,
It only takes a look into a child’s
eyes and face and to know you have made a difference. One story that will be
with me forever, is a student who came to me with very open eyes and a small
tear and said “thank you, I have not eaten in two days because we had no food
at home.” Then he said, “I think I am ready for classes now because my stomach
does not ache.” His whole face showed
relief! It warmed my heart to know I made a difference in this child and I want
to share that Breakfast for Learning made a big difference in this child - you
gave us the opportunity to give a hungry boy food for his soul. Thank you for
making a difference- this is only one story of many- know that without your
contribution we could not make their hunger go away but now we are feeding their
empty stomachs. Thank you!!”

With the holiday season upon us,
you can make healthy snacks that are fun, festive and give children the nourishment
they need to do their best at school. With a little creativity, there are so
many holiday treats you can create with healthy foods! Here’s a fun and easy
recipe that your children can bring to their class holiday party:
- Break pretzels so that they resemble antlers. Poke through top of muffin.
- Place two dabs of cream cheese on top of muffin for eyes.
- Put one chocolate chip in each dab of cream cheese.
- Finish face by placing a red Smartie in the middle of the muffin to
resemble a nose.
