Start the school year by eating right
Summer is rapidly coming to a close, and the kids are dreading returning to school. Parents may dread it as well; it can be a daily struggle to pack lunches and make sure the kids have had something to eat before they dash out the door. It will pay off if you make the effort, said a University of Illinois Extension nutrition and wellness educator.
“Although any breakfast is better than no breakfast, making the extra effort to make it healthy might help your kids do better in school. Studies show that kids who eat a balanced breakfast have higher test scores and can concentrate better and solve problems more easily in class,” Leia Kedem said.
Children with healthier diets may also have fewer behavioral problems. Hunger itself can cause discomfort, crankiness, and outbursts in even the best-behaved kids, she noted.
