A pilot program underway at the middle school site of the Center School District in Kansas City is testing the effects of protein-rich breakfasts on student behavior and attention. The program was implemented for a brief four weeks at the end of the 2017-2018 school year with just the eighth-graders, and has now been expanded to all of the some 560 sixth- through eighth-graders in the building this fall.
