Is there a simple way to have schools perform better?
It's as simple as getting a good breakfast.
Listened to a great TED talk recently about how crucial it is for kids to get a nutritious breakfast either at their school or before they get to school. If breakfast is not served at you local school you should try and get them to do it. Schools that serve breakfast to all students consistently show improved test scores, better grades and less disciplinary problems.
Want a simple way to improve the education system? The benefits on health and learning of providing a nutritious breakfast are very clear. It is one of the easiest ways of helping every school and all their students be more successful.
What can we expect our kids to learn if they're hungry or eating diets full of sugar and empty of nutrients? Former White House Chef and food policymaker Sam Kass discusses the role schools can play in nourishing students' bodies in addition to their minds.
