Research shows that a successful school breakfast program improves student attendance, reduces classroom behavior problems, and help students do better academically. School employees are an integral part of such a program. That's why Michigan Team Nutrition and the United Dairy Industry of Michigan need your help.
Michigan children are inundated with advertisements from alcohol, tobacco, pornography and gambling marketers through the Internet and cell phones.
The State of Michigan offers a free registry to stop adult advertisements from reaching emails, mobile phones, text messages and instant messenger addresses. At www.ProtectMichild.com, parents, educators, schools and families can sign up for this free do-not-contact service that MEA supports.
Help spread the word. Tell your colleagues, friends and school district how they can protect children and families from unwanted adult advertising.
