The article discusses the lessons learned by Jean Ronnei, director of nutrition and commercial services at Saint Paul Public Schools in Minnesota, regarding the expansion of the Breakfast to Go (B2G) program, a breakfast in the classroom program. Ronnei suggests that school districts should think about piloting the program in a school with a willing, creative and influential principal such as Wellstone. Results of the program include an increase in the participation at B2G schools, a drop in tardiness and a decrease in office referrals for discipline.
