Note from our Health Office

Healthy Eaters are Better Learners

Did you know that skipping breakfast is linked to diminished intellectual performance among students?

Did you know that inadequate consumption of specific foods (fruits, vegetables, and dairy) is linked to lower grades among students?

Families who provide their children the energy to start their day (breakfast) and a balanced diet give their children an advantage for better learning and better grades.

Learning is fun
