Why are healthy eating habits important?

Research has shown that students learn better when well-nourished. Specifically, healthy eating has been linked to higher grades, better memory and concentration, more alertness, faster information processing and better attendance.

Healthy eating choices are also associated with a positive body image. Obtaining proper nutrients through healthy food choices helps build strong bones, improves immunity, and decreases the risk of illness.
