Healthy habits in childhood can directly impact health in adulthood! Most of us know that nutrition can play a role in disease prevention, but we often don’t think about how eating can impact brain health and learning. When we eat a balanced diet, we fuel our brains with the nourishment it needs to stay attentive and focused while we are absorbing and processing new information.
Supporting healthy eating patterns in children goes beyond just what is being offered in the home. Schools play an important role in establishing healthy habits in childhood because children are encouraged to try new foods when they observe what their peers are eating. Even the pickiest of eaters can learn to like new foods with continued exposure. This is why St. Joseph works with a certified dietician to help build healthy, well-balanced lunches to serve your students from our amazing vendors.
We appreciate your support as we work to nurture the whole child; mind, spirit and body, and look forward to a happy, holy and helpful (and healthy) year!
