Kids: Nutrition and Grades

Dr. Alberto Carvalho, Superintendent for Miami-Dade County Public Schools, explains it is research-based that kids who are unhealthy (physically, emotionally, or psychologically), and hungry do not have the same readiness for learning as healthy kids. He also points out they allow every single kid to access to healthy nutritious food, because that helps eliminating a lot of the precursors to academic gaps. "Whether kids arrive at school early or not, the access to food is a right that they possess, and I want parents to be aware of this."
