In homes where students do not have access to healthy foods, schools should be a place where students can count on eating healthfully. Eating habits are established early, and eating healthfully is a life skill. But it’s not just about avoiding heart disease and type 2 diabetes in the future; it’s about ensuring that children are healthy now. Healthy food equals better health, better grades, and better behaviour.
