The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board is sponsoring five 'Breakfast with Bucky' events in Dane County schools during National School Breakfast week March 2-5. Schools will be planning special menus, promotions and exciting events to welcome Bucky Badger and promote the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast.

"School breakfast ensures a nutritious start to the day and supplies 1/4 of the Recommended Daily Allowances student's need," explains , Wisconsin Dairy Council Director Laura Wilford. "School breakfasts are healthy, nutritious meals that provide a variety of foods including low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese and yogurt that give students the fuel needed to start the day."

In addition to being full of good nutrition, school breakfast helps students achieve their classroom goals. National studies consistently confirm that breakfast helps kids concentrate, think, behave and learn.

** March 2: Gompers Elementary, Madison Metropolitan, 8:00 a.m.

** March 3: Brooklyn Elementary, Oregon, 7:45 a.m.
