BATTLE CREEK, Mich., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today kicks off National Breakfast Week, March 3-7, and Kellogg's has partnered with Action for Healthy Kids® and Team Kellogg's™ U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes to help provide two million breakfasts to children in need through the "Give A Great Start" program.

Team Kellogg's is heading home to help feed the potential of kids in need.

"Everyone deserves a great start and that begins with breakfast. But every day, one in five kids goes without breakfast 1," said Noelle Pikus-Pace, U.S. Olympic silver medalist. "I'm proud to be part of this important effort to help feed children's potential and give them the great start that they deserve."

Families can help make a difference by going to www.kelloggs.com/teamusa to view the "Great Starts" video featuring Team Kellogg's, as well as a series of Start Story videos, which follow the athletes' inspirational journeys to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. When fans view, like, re-tweet, pin or share any of the "Great Starts" online content using #greatstarts, Kellogg's will help provide breakfast to children in need 2.

Kellogg's "Give A Great Start" program is part of the company's Breakfasts for Better Days™ commitment  to provide 1 billion servings of cereal and snacks – more than half of which are breakfast – to children and families in need around the world by the end of 2016.

Kellogg's and Team Kellogg's Partner Up for Great Starts

Team Kellogg's athletes proved that great starts lead to great things in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Now, during National Breakfast Week, Team Kellogg's is heading back home to help provide a great start and feed the potential of kids in need. Team Kellogg's athletes who will be participating in National Breakfast Week activities include:

  • Meryl Davis & Charlie White – Ice Dancing
  • Ted Ligety – Alpine Skiing
  • Noelle Pikus-Pace – Skeleton

"We are proud of our Team Kellogg's athletes and their performance in Sochi. We are even more proud to see them coming home and helping kids in need," said Noel Geoffroy, senior vice president, Marketing & Innovation for Kellogg's U.S. Morning Foods. "By helping to give kids access to a nutritious breakfast, we are giving them a great start that can help set them up for the day ahead."

Three Team Kellogg's athletes will be visiting schools in their home states to inspire students and families to get involved in the "Give A Great Start" program. They will be hosting a series of fun, interactive events for students, as well as sponsoring local community breakfasts during National Breakfast Week.

  • Meryl Davis and Charlie White will be challenging teachers to a dancing competition at Salem High School in Canton, Mich., March 7
  • Noelle Pikus-Pace will be recreating a skeleton race at Northridge High School in Layton, Utah, March 10

"Charlie and I believe in the importance of a great start," said Meryl Davis, U.S. Olympic gold medalist. "I can't get through the day without a balanced breakfast, so it really means a lot to have the opportunity to help provide great starts to kids in our community."

The Power of Breakfast

National Breakfast Week aims to raise awareness and educate families about the importance of breakfast. Data shows that breakfast can help kick-start metabolism, energy and focus for learning 3 and can help set them up for the day ahead 4,5. Together, cereal plus one cup of milk is a leading source of 10 nutrients important to growing bodies, and may provide four of the nutrients Americans are missing most 6 – calcium, potassium, vitamin D and fiber **7.

"So many children rely on the national School Breakfast Program to get breakfast every day. Without it, one out of five children would not get breakfast at all," said Rob Bisceglie, Action for Healthy Kids CEO. "The 'Give A Great Start' program not only helps feed these at-risk children, but feeds their potential as well."
