Did you know that most children don’t eat a balanced meal? Did you know that over 80% of children don’t eat enough of the healthy foods their body needs for proper nourishment. This can affect their concentration and learning ability in school. Did you know that more and more children are overweight today? This can lead to a lifetime of health problems including diabetes or heart disease.
