Kids Should Focus on Learning, Not On Their Empty Stomachs

Have you ever tried to concentrate on an empty stomach? On World Food Day, we reflect on the link between healthy and nourished children and its effects on learning. Healthy and nourished children are better able to learn at school and attend classes more often. A meal at school can act as a magnet to get children into the classroom and as a social safety net to help the world’s most vulnerable families.

This is a very important topic and an essential one in education. I visited a school today in Cape Town South Africa when children as part of our school feeding programme enjoyed breakfast. I also visited schools on other occasions during lunch. A large number of learners are being fed and this is making a major difference in terms of attendance. The feeding programme is essential for these learners. so yes a great article and important information for educationists anywhere in the world.
