As simple as it may sound to the everyday person, “Breakfast” is the most important meal of the day. It’s stunning to know that many of us take it for granted; waking up each morning to have a hot meal before we start our day. This is not the case for many Grenadian children. Many of future scholars wake up each morning not having anything to eat. As a result, they leave home hungry and at school, they are not able to focus which do have an effect on their learning. This needs to change now!
EATING BREAKFAST HAS LONG TERM HEALTH BENEFITS. IT CAN REDUCE OBESITY, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, HEART DISEASE AND DIABETES.
A study shows that students who are given nutritious breakfast daily make significant improvements in learning, school attendance, behavior, and self-esteem. This is the type of investment we should be making into our kids.
Smile Kids Grenada is dedicated to provide a daily breakfast to elementary school students starting with kindergarten through grade 3. We need your help!
