Benefits of Eating Lunch
Good Lunch Choices
In addition to the immediate relief of a growling stomach, lunch contributes to a solid foundation of good nutrition on a continuing basis. A healthy lunch should provide a student with enough calories to keep her going throughout the day no matter what her activity level. The calories should come from nutritious foods that are low-calorie and low-fat.
A good lunch benefits a student by giving him the energy to remain alert during class time. This is true whether the student is in elementary school, high school or college. As long as the student avoids a heavy midday meal, which can cause lethargy and sleepiness, a healthy lunch helps maintain peak academic performance. Make lunch even more beneficial by choosing foods based on their nutritional benefits
