Organizations with important causes have made us aware of our responsibility to participate and be a part of the solution.
Perhaps even the catalyst for change.
From Breast Cancer to Pet abuse, we have been informed of what the issues are and what we can do to improve the situation.
There is another group with an important message to share. Early in the morning. Don’t blink, you may have missed it but should know about it.
National School Breakfast Week is still an open book that we should read. The contents are nutritionally beneficial and their cause has a lot of support.
For good reason.
National School Breakfast Week was a weeklong celebration from March 8 through 12, 2021, of the federal School Breakfast Program, which provides low-income children with a nutritious morning meal each school day.
As posted at dpi.wi.gov, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, “Eating breakfast is important to helping students achieve academic success, whether they are learning in-person or virtually. School breakfast programs play a vital role in ensuring that all students have access to a nutritious breakfast to start the day. Use the 2021 NSBW theme to promote your school breakfast program to parents and students.”
We like that. A very educational message.
The Texas Department of Agriculture expands, “The School Breakfast Week (SBW) 2021 materials highlight Texas students’ creativity; this year’s artwork was inspired by the winning entries in the most recent You Art What You Eat student art contest. To enter, Texas students illustrated their interpretations of a nutritious meal and the space-exploration theme Blast Off with a Healthy School Lunch.”
Very creative. Ideally delicious.
Make no mistake about it, there is a massive need for this program.
As reported at The US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, “Many nutritional professionals believe that all Americans, regardless of income, have access to a nutritious diet of whole grains, lean meats, and fresh vegetables and fruit. In reality, food prices pose a significant barrier for many consumers who are trying to balance good nutrition with affordability.
When incomes drop and family budgets shrink, food choices shift toward cheaper but more energy-dense foods. The first items dropped are usually healthier foods – high-quality proteins, whole grains, vegetables and fruit. Low cost energy-rich starches, added sugars, and vegetable fats represent the cheapest way to fill hungry stomachs.”
This appears to be an unfortunate reality.
The great news is that people in high places want to improve the situation.
One of them is the gorgeous star, Drew Barrymore.
Ever a shining star and Hollywood industry legend, Drew has a show stopping resume.
Drew is a successful actress, producer, director, talk show host and entrepreneur, who is the recipient of numerous accolades, including a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a BAFTA nomination.
She went on to appear in a string of successful films throughout the decade, including Poison Ivy (1992), Boys on the Side (1995), Mad Love (1995), Batman Forever (1995), Scream (1996), and Ever After (1998). Barrymore collaborated with Adam Sandler on three films, The Wedding Singer (1998), 50 First Dates (2004) and Blended (2014).
Wow. Impressive. Please take a deep breath. There is more.
Our luminary’s other films include Never Been Kissed (1999), Charlie’s Angels (2000), Donnie Darko (2001), Riding in Cars with Boys (2001), Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002), Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003), Fever Pitch (2005), Music and Lyrics (2007), Going the Distance (2010), Big Miracle (2012) and Miss You Already (2015).
Drew also made her directorial debut film Whip It (2009), in which she also starred. As well.
Now, as we say, that our friends is star power and Drew is using that star power to help ensure that economically challenged children can eat healthier.
Please get your popcorn and sit back and enjoy.

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — This National Breakfast Week, actress, talk show host and entrepreneur Drew Barrymore joins Kellogg® to reveal a little-known tip she shares with all her friends: fiber is an essential nutrient that helps support overall wellness, so it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough of it.
Most people think of fiber as an old-school nutrient, leading many to fall short of the recommended daily amount,1 but did you know fiber is a super nutrient that helps support digestive health? The good news is, getting more fiber into your diet can be deliciously simple with Kellogg’s high-fiber cereals, including Kellogg’s Raisin Bran® and Frosted Mini-Wheats®.
“Ever since I was a little kid, Kellogg cereal has been a staple to my breakfast routine, which is why I was excited to team up and spread the word about how tasty fiber can be,” said Barrymore. “So, I’m challenging you to grab your bestie and reach for a bowl of Kellogg Raisin Bran or Frosted Mini-Wheats—my personal fave—to make adding more fiber to your diet easy, delicious, and BFF-approved.”
The fiber fun facts don’t stop there. Did you know Kellogg’s Raisin Bran and Frosted Mini-Wheats provide at least 20% of the recommended daily fiber in just one bowl? Forget chalky powders and bulky supplements and reach instead for Kellogg’s high-fiber cereals that make it deliciously easy to add more fiber to your morning routine. Unlike some fiber supplements, both cereals offer additional nutrients, like at least seven vitamins and minerals, including iron.
So, whether you’re craving something hearty and sweet, or you’re in the mood for something toasty and crunchy, Kellogg’s Raisin Bran and Frosted Mini-Wheats have you covered with flavor-packed fiber you can feel good about eating. So good, you might just want to share with a friend.
