Health & Nutrition

Nutrition: What and when a child eats impacts their mood and ability to function. Nearly half of all American families regularly skip breakfast. Is your family one of them? When it comes to getting your children to school, a healthy breakfast is just as important as gym shoes and sharp pencils.

Sleep: How does inadequate sleep impact children the next day?  Children often don’t say they are tired, they act it out. The most notable reaction is a crabby, short-tempered child, however, another sign that your child overtired is an overly active “or hyper” child.  Children with poor sleeping habits tend to have a negative self-image, lack initiative, are depressed and unable to concentrate.
