Breakfast food is a champion of all cuisines. It’s a perfect mixture of savory and sweet. It’s what I look forward to most in the mornings.

And while the items included in the Breakfast-in-Classroom (BIC) are typically underwhelming, I do appreciate that BIC is provided for free to all students as part of the national school breakfast program. Akins was the first high school in Austin ISD to adopt BIC when the program started during the 2016- 17 school year. The program allows students to pick from a variety of meals each morning that rotate on a regular basis.

It’s a large undertaking to prepare about 2,000 meals and distribute them to hundreds of classrooms each morning.

A lot of the foods are not stars of this meal genre but there are a few items I would say are noteworthy.

For the purpose of reviewing I looked at my favorites, the biscuit and sausage combo, a yogurt parfait, and breakfast tacos. For the sake of fairness, I set up a three-point system to give each food a chance. Aesthetic: When I look at it, do I want to eat it? Is it appealing to the eye? Taste: Is it seasoned? Do I enjoy eating it? Fullness: Will I be OK until lunch?
