Nutrition and Early Learning… What’s the Connection?
 
There has been a lot of research that tells us that children who eat healthy foods oftendo better in school. Why is this? Our bodies are made to use food as a fuel for all of ourdaily activities. Using your brain is a very important part of your daily life, whetheryou are six months old or 60 years old. When you eat healthy meals and snacks thatcontain foods from the food groups, you are making sure that your body is ready towork well.Nutritionist Charity Alcocer from Calgary explains the nutrition and learningconnection:
“Research tells us that adequate nutrition in children has been shown to
improve learning skills, especially memory work. Inadequate nutrition contributes tolower test scores, irritability and poor concentration," she says. "We do seeimprovements in learning and behaviour when kids are well nourished. We know thata well-balanced lunch consists of foods from at least three of the four food groups."Make healthy eating a habit for your child. Her body and mind will thank you for it.From:http://www.canada.com/topics/lifestyle/fitness/story.html?id=05f2225a-f952-4a59-aa79-dcde3e612ec3&k=63776
