Go for the Gold: Breakfast
August 08, 2012 | Written By: Healthy Schools Campaign
As part of our Go for the Gold celebration, students created artwork and wrote essays about health and wellness at their school.
Darnell describes his healthy breakfast of oatmeal, 100% orange juice, carrots, eggs, and an apple. Sounds delicious! Research demonstrates that students who begin the day with a healthy breakfast are better able to learn and have fewer tardies and absences. Students who eat breakfast also display improved cognitive function, improved attention span and better behavior.
In June, 37 Chicago schools were recognized for meeting the high standards of the HealthierUS School Challenge.
Stay posted for more student art from this celebration!
