Why healthy school lunches matter

There’s no shortage of research on the role of proper nutrition in improving children’s cognitive function and academic achievement, and school meal programs play a significant role in that. Students who participate in school meal programs eat more fruits and vegetables than those who don’t participate. Students who eat breakfast at school have better attendance rates and better test scores. (Source: CDC Health Schools | School Meals website)
