“From our Dietitian”
Nutrition research leaves us with no doubt that childhood nutrition impacts both childhood development and adulthood health. With 12-14 developmental years spent at school, we can safely say that school lunches and snacks play a significant role in either optimizing or compromising childhood nutrition.
