It has been three days since I have had breakfast but it feels like an eternity. Why am I doing this? It's part of the Kellogg's Breakfasts for Better Days blogger challenge but ultimately it's because I believe in the importance of this initiative.

Investments in computers and books are wasted if a student can’t hear the teacher over his or her growling stomach. Breakfast programs, like those supported by Kellogg Canada, can make a big difference as evidenced by the Kellogg’s survey which found that 97 per cent of teachers working in a school with a Breakfast Club recognize the programs as having a positive impact.”
