SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As students prepare for their first day of school, McDonald's restaurants in Northern California and Northern Nevada are helping kick-start their year with a breakfast. On Tuesday, Sept. 13, participating restaurants will offer free breakfast to kindergarten through eighth grade students from 6:30-9:30 a.m. All students must be accompanied by an adult when visiting a participating McDonald's restaurant. Students can receive an Egg McMuffin, apple slices and 1% low fat milk, free of charge.
"Research continues to show that breakfast is important not only for children's health, but for academic achievement, cognitive development and mental health," said Alice Fagundes, MS, RDN, FAND, CDE and California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Chair. "This is a great program to celebrate the busy back-to-school season as McDonald's provides a wide array of breakfast options for families on the go."
Families may enjoy breakfast options such as the Egg McMuffin, which features freshly cracked Grade A egg, extra lean Canadian bacon and a slice of melty American cheese on an English muffin.
"McDonald's is proud to offer a wide array of balanced breakfast options for the entire family," said Gino Potesta, Vice President and General Manager of McDonald's Pacific Sierra Region in Northern California and Northern Nevada. "We are once again excited to help families in our communities make their mornings special and start their school days with a healthy meal."
