Why do we need a well balanced diet?

To be ready to learn and to achieve their fullest potential,

 children need to be well nourished and healthy.

 For that reason they must have an adequate supply

of healthy foods and the knowledge and skills required

 to make wise food choices. Effective nutrition education

 provides children and their families with information

on gaining access to adequate food sources, including

 the range of school nutrition programs available.
