Each school will comply with the applicable federal regulations including, but not limited to, 7 CFR 220 and 245, when implementing a breakfast program.

A school's food services, including kitchen and dining areas, must meet, at a minimum, all applicable state and federal regulations for meal preparation, service, and food consumption.

The breakfast program may be provided before the school day begins or during a scheduled morning break. It is recommended that students have a minimum of two hours between breakfast and lunch whenever possible. Students must be provided a minimum of 10 minutes to eat breakfast after the meal is served.

All foods which are sold from 6 a.m. until after the close of the last breakfast service period must be of sound nutritional value and contribute significantly to students' nutritional needs as identified in current Recommended Dietary Allowances. The income from any food sales during this period shall accrue to the school food service.
