Good nutrition boosts school performance
November is recognised as Good Nutrition Month, a time to celebrate the importance of a well-balanced diet. While nutrition is essential for overall health, it also plays a significant role in improving school performance among children. The positive impact of nutrition on school performance can be seen in examples such as:
- Enhanced cognitive function: Proper nutrition fuels the brain, leading to improved concentration, memory, and problem-solving abilities.
- Balanced energy levels: Nutrient-rich meals help maintain consistent energy levels, preventing energy crashes during the school day.
- Better attendance: A healthy diet strengthens the immune system, reducing the chances of illness and school absenteeism.
- Emotional well-being: Good nutrition supports emotional stability, reducing mood swings and promoting a positive outlook, which can lead to better social interactions and classroom behaviour.
- Improved test scores: Students who eat well often perform better on exams and assessments.
- Enhanced attention span: Nutrient-dense foods help increase attention span, allowing students to stay focused during lessons.
- Overall growth and development: Proper nutrition aids in physical growth and development, ensuring children have the stamina and health to excel academically.
