Did you know, according to Alliance for a Healthier Generation, that children consume up to 50% of their daily calories during the school day? That’s why schools play such an important part in helping children develop lifelong healthy habits. Research shows that healthy, properly nourished students are better able to concentrate on their work, miss school less often, and perform better in class.
