Cindy Goody, PhD, senior director of nutrition for McDonald’s USA, says a wholesome breakfast that includes food groups like fruit, whole grains and low-fat milk or lean protein helps provide the fuel and nutrients children need to start the day.
“Whether students eat at home, at their school or at McDonald’s, it’s important to have a well-balanced breakfast every day,” said Dr. Goody, a registered and licensed dietitian. “For children and adults, a balanced breakfast can contribute many important nutrients to help meet daily nutritional needs as well as provide energy to start the day.”
This is the third consecutive year McDonald’s restaurants in the Midlands have offered a free breakfast the morning of the PASS Test.
