As parents, we want to give our kids all the advantages we can. Sometimes the simplest things make the biggest difference. For example, there is a simple way to boost a child’s learning that is neglected by many parents but can make a huge difference, not just in a child’s education, but in nearly every area of a child’s life. This one thing:
- boosts learning and mental well-being
- helps prevent obesity
- increases energy
- reduces childhood illness and aids recovery from sickness and injury
- builds stronger muscles and bones
- increases life expectancy
Even better: this is something Grace Community School helps our students with automatically, and at no charge! This one thing is your child’s nutrition.
Is Food Really That Important?
Is the food your child eats on a regular basis really that important? In a word: yes. Food is fuel. You are what your eat. From ancient times we have known that food is vital to good health, just as important or more so than physical exercise. The World Health Organization estimates that almost half of all childhood deaths are linked to malnutrition.
Even when it doesn’t endanger the life of a child, less-than-optimal child nutrition has a negative impact on kids — even affecting academic performance. Conversely, eating healthy foods and not skipping meals has been shown to boost test scores. Let’s not forget that kids who eat better have more energy to play and have fun!
Doesn’t That Cost a Lot?
Normally, eating healthy is not cheap. There’s a heated debate right now as to why healthy foods cost so much more than junk food. What’s a parent to do? Let us help!
Grace Community School offers FREE breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks. Our nutritious USDA-approved meals are prepared fresh onsite daily. For free. Better nutrition means kids who can tackle the challenges of childhood with ease. The result is kids who play better, learn better, are sick less often, and have more fun! Did we mention that it’s free?
You Can Know Exactly What Your Child Eats at School
We keep Grace Community School parents informed of the latest school news and upcoming events with our website, social media, and email newsletter. This extends to our food program, too. You can always check out the month’s school food menu at this link.
