What is the importance of nutritious food for students?

A:

In Canada, 47% of girls and 33% of boys in grade 8 skip breakfast. Students involved in school nutrition programs: are more likely to try new fruits and vegetables; develop good nutrition habits; are less likely to be truant or late for school; are more likely to demonstrate positive behaviours in the classroom; better perceive their own health as excellent or good; are able to concentrate better, and retain and apply information more effectively. School meals can make an almost immediate difference in academic achievement. Students who ate morning meals on most days of the school week achieved better results on their learning skills compared with students who only ate morning meals two or less days a week.
