Health Smart Campaign
Today’s Health Smart Reminder: A healthy, balanced diet is linked with academic achievement. In fact, the absence of certain food groups or nutrients in a child’s diet can negatively impact grades and attendance. Kids who don’t eat enough fruits, vegetables and milk and dairy foods tend to get lower grades than students who do meet dietary recommendations. Furthermore, deficits of specific nutrients like vitamins A, B6, B12, C, folate, iron, zinc and calcium are associated with lower grades and higher rates of absenteeism and tardiness among students. Be health smart!
