New National Report, Florida Initiative Puts Focus on School Breakfast
Date:3/18/2013

Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) March 18, 2013

The move is on to help young people boost their nutrition and overall health and wellness, especially on the heels of a new report that reveals teens aren't regularly eating the most important meal of the day – breakfast – and aren't as active as they should be on a daily basis.

March is National Nutrition Month, and several initiatives have been announced nationally and statewide to help boost children’s health and wellness.

A new report called, The Wellness Impact: Enhancing Academic Success Through Healthy School Environments(1), reinforces the “learning connection” — the crucial link between quality nutrition, physical activity and academic performance. Finding a balance between academic rigor and health and wellness efforts in the school environment has become an increasing priority. The report was released by the GENYOUth Foundation, National Dairy Council (NDC), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American School Health Association (ASHA). Key findings from the report suggest:

  • More than half (62%) of all teens say they do not eat breakfast every day of the week.(2)
  • Breakfast eaters have better attention and memory than breakfast skippers.(3)
  • Three-in-four high school students aren't active for the recommended 60 minutes each day.(2)
  • Students who were more active during school performed better on standardized tests for reading, math and spelling.(4)
  • Studies show that students who eat school breakfast increase their math and reading scores and improve their cognitive speed and memory. Research also links eating breakfast at school to improvements in student behavior, fewer absences, and limited class disruptions.
