Healthy children and youth are in a position to be better learners. When children and youth eat right, they can improve their memory and their ability to concentrate. Eating well also supports healthy growth and encourages healthy behaviours that can be maintained throughout adulthood.
Schools can play a central role in promoting the health of young people, not only academically, but also by ensuring an environment that supports healthy eating.
