If you are what you eat, then we want all kids to eat healthy meals! Properly nourished students are better able to concentrate on their school work, miss school less often, and perform better in class and out-of-school time activities.
In honor of National Nutrition Month® try these four simple tips to empower your children or students to develop healthy eating habits:
- Celebrate achievements with non-food rewards (think: stickers or extra play time!)
- Start the day with breakfast to boost energy and brain power
- Review school meal options to help kids make healthy choices
- Advocate for health-promoting practices at your child’s school
