Kids learn better eating habits when schools provide healthy foods. Learn what you can do to promote nutritious foods at your school. The idea behind the Healthy Food is to help children make better food choices. That means healthy and tasty foods need to be available for the kids at school.
Most Nepalese children attend school for eight hours a day and consume as much as half of their daily calories at school. Kids who eat healthy foods at school learn better lifelong eating habits and are readier to learn.
Healthy students are better learners. Research shows that nutrition affects student achievement. Student participation in the School Breakfast Program is associated with higher academic grades and standardized test scores, reduced absences, and improved memory.
With an awareness program like these at Daffodil School we try to simply teach children to eat right meal. The sooner we introduce wholesome, nutritious choices into our kids diet, the easier they’ll be able to develop a healthy relationship with food that can last them a lifetime.
” YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT SO EAT HEALTHY AND STAY HEALTHY”
What can you do to support healthy eating?
The School Food and Beverage Policy only covers foods that are provided at school. It does not apply to lunches that are brought from home. Does that mean you should put just anything into your child’s lunch box? Not if you want to support healthy eating! It is important to be consistent and offer healthy options for your kids at home and at school. This will help your
children learn about healthy food choices.
Promote healthy eating by getting involved at school and at home. Take children grocery shopping, pack healthy lunches and support healthy activities at school. As a role model, you can teach your kids healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.
