PHOENIX, Ariz. -- It’s the most important meal of the day, and everyone is celebrating it for National School Breakfast Week.

The School Nutrition Association created the celebration to raise awareness of the importance of a healthy breakfast for a successful school day. The association has toolkits, activities and resources to help school lunch programs, parents and children make the best out of Breakfast Week.

McDonald’s offered their support by offering special breakfast discounts from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. this morning. Parents who purchased an Egg McMuffin for their child received a free Happy Meal coupon book.

This year's Breakfast Week theme is "Make the Grade with School Breakfast." Learning is easier on a full stomach, so take advantage of National Breakfast Week to start a daily routine for success.
