This article reports that the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) has made several recommendations to U.S. federal and state governments to help schools pick up the pace on their breakfast programs. Based on the FRAC's 2008 School Breakfast Scoreboard, 8.5 million low-income children ate breakfast in school last year, a 4% rise than in 2006-07. The ratio of breakfast to lunch also increased from last school year but still far below the 60-to-100 ratio that is FRAC's goal.
