Healthy lunches, snack foods and beverages can make a difference in the physical and mental performance of students. That’s why many schools are making changes as to what is available in school cafeterias and vending machines.Healthy lunches, snack foods and beverages can make a difference in the physical and mental performance of students. That’s why many schools are making changes as to what is available in school cafeterias and vending machines.
A 2017 paper entitled “School Lunch Quality and Academic Performance” shows schools that contract with vendors providing healthy school lunches have a student population that scores higher on achievement tests. Such results support the long-argued medical and nutrition literature that a healthy diet can improve cognitive function.
Student services at the University of British Columbia easily lay out the physical and mental benefits of eating well:
- More energy
- Consistent energy levels throughout the day
- Feel full longer
- Healthy weight management
- Stronger bones and muscles
- Improved immune system
- Improved ability to focus on tasks like studying and writing
But let’s face it, no matter what their age, most students will not eat well consistently. That is where moms and dads can step in and give their children of all ages an education with the nutritional advantage of AIM supplements.
Introducing AIM products into the lives of children can make a huge difference in their physical health and academic performance throughout their schooling. The following are just a few of many healthy choices in the AIM lineup.
Essential Fatty Acids
Omega-3 is one of two essential fatty acids (EFAs) that must come from dietary intake because the human body cannot produce them. The second is omega-6, which often comes from unhealthy food sources, such as fast foods and processed snacks, cookies and crackers made with refined vegetable oils, so most people get more omega-6 than omega-3. AIMega delivers a balanced 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 from an organic seed-oil source. Every cell in you and your child’s body requires a healthy balance of these EFAs to function optimally.
Students of all ages may not eat (or refuse to eat) enough vegetables. BarleyLife Xtra, a naturally sweet choice of greens, and CoCoa LeafGreens, chocolaty greens, can provide this missing link to good health. These concentrated powders offer an unsurpassed source of plant-based nutrition to supplement the all-too-frequent poor diets of students.
Send your children back to school with an AIM advantage.
