While proper nutrition and regular exercise have long been part of the formula for a healthy lifestyle, many parents do not realize how these two factors also contribute to success in the classroom.
In honor of the upcoming Every Kid Healthy Week (April 20-24), we’re excited to share a special report from Action for Healthy Kids – The Learning Connection: What You Need to Know to Ensure Your Kids are Healthy and Ready to Learn. The report goes into detail on three important concepts:
- Physical activity supports achievement in the classroom.
- Kids who eat well learn better.
- Schools can increase their bottom lines by offering healthier foods.
