„It is impossible to educate the mind without the body. Learning is thinking and movement integrated.“ Maria Montessori

Healthy meals equal healthy minds, and as the caretakers of young minds we have a duty to ensure that the nutritional needs of all our children are being met right alongside their educational requirements. We know from the abundance of research on the relationship between health and academic achievement that a balanced diet enables optimal performance for our students. Children learn how to read, write, and think in the classroom. This should be extended into learning how to eat healthy. Mealtime at school provides a great opportunity to do some “hands-on” learning about healthy eating.
