Keeping students engaged year around represents both a challenge and an opportunity. While there are many proven approaches that support students for academic achievement and socialization, we often pay less attention to the importance of nutrition and exercise as resources to boost success. Helping students to connect with food and its value for a healthy start at the beginning and throughout the day represents a good investment in a partnering relationship that can span their entire lives. Learning what kinds of foods comprise a healthy diet and the importance of eating and exercising at the right times could help to reduce obesity, stabilize sugar levels and minimize or eliminate the onset of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and heart ailments. So how can we act now if we are a key player in the life of our nation’s youth…parent, grandparent, relative, family friend, organization etc.
