Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially for students. Beginning each school day with a belly full of a nutritious morning meal is linked to better performance overall.

Charlie Baker this August seeks to change that, by requiring schools to offer breakfast right after the bell rings.
We talked about the need for the bill last November, when it was first introduced.
