Health and nutrition impacts the way a student learns, feels and thinks. Research shows that healthy eating has been linked to higher grades, better concentration, more energy, and better attendance. Healthy eating also minimizes future risks like anemia, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, tooth decay and obesity. Parents play a crucial role in helping children establish healthy eating habits for life.
