Kellogg Co., maker of breakfast brands such as Cocoa Krispies cereal and Eggo waffles, said its U.S. morning foods unit suffered a 3.3% sales decline in the second quarter. Overall North American sales were up 3.3% to $2.4 billion, while the American snacks division soared 8%. But growth in the cereal category “was disappointing,” Chief Executive John Bryant told analysts during a conference call Thursday. Brands such as Special K, Raisin Bran and Frosted Flakes performed well, but the adult cereal segment was weak, Bryant said.

Re "Keep school breakfast, parents urge," May 1 No one wants to deny breakfast to hungry kids. The question is where and when they will eat. Breakfast should be served in the school lunch area before class. California sets a minimum number of instructional minutes per year, and lunch and recess are timed to comply. I don't understand how it's even legal to knock off up to 30 minutes for breakfast. Food detritus in the classroom is a big problem. I'll never forget the day a big red cockroach got on my shoe.

Some people are firm believers that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why limit breakfast to just the morning? Sometimes you get the hankering for a waffle after 6 p.m., and who's to tell you you can't have it? This weekend our Monday #weekendeats chat participants took the time to indulge in a proper breakfast. Here are the highlights: On the savory side, Jessica Soo shared a photo of her breakfast quesadilla with roasted poblano salsa and Greg K had pork belly and eggs on a cornmeal waffle and Susan Orlins shared a recipe for Mark Bittman's corn pancakes . For pancake lovers, Brooks Walker of the blog calkwalkr.com shared a photo of his whole-grain pancakes dotted with Gravenstein apples and walnuts with a pat of butter and maple syrup.

Sqirl opened its production space to the public for breakfast and lunch service on Thursday. Patrons can now dine under the same roof where Sqirl's preserves -- including jams, chutneys, fruit butters and marmalades -- are made. Jam maker Jessica Koslow has teamed with chef Ria Wilson, formerly of Canelé, to offer a seasonal menu with local produce from family-owned farms that are in close proximity to her kitchen. The shop, designed by Freeland Buck, will also serve coffee from the duo behind G&B Coffee -- Kyle Glanville and Charles Babinski -- who are ex-Intelligentsia baristas.

Re "A Winning Serve," Jan. 30. I have been eating breakfast at Bobby's Coffee Shop for over 32 years and want to congratulate staff writer Scott Glover for his article on this landmark restaurant in Woodland Hills. There is, however, one correction that needs to be made in the story. In his opening paragraph, Glover calls Bobby's, "a greasy breakfast joint." Let the facts speak for themselves: Bobby's is no franchise operation. The service and breakfasts are beyond comparison, and it is the best "greasy breakfast joint" in Los Angeles, which is why it is still around after 50 years.

The Los Angeles Board of Education approved funding for discretionary programs such as classroom breakfasts at its meeting Tuesday. Many of the discretionary program items were placed on the board's consent calendar - with the exception of Breakfast in the Classroom - and were outlined in a memo that Supt. John Deasy sent to members last month, saying that they would not be funded without explicit board approval. The controversial breakfast program, which feeds more than 2,000 students in 290 schools across the L.A. Unified School District, passed unanimously with high-profile support from union workers, parents and mayoral candidate Wendy Greuel.
