Healthy Students are Better Students!

Healthy students are better students.  It’s the primary focus behind the Nebraska Whole Child Project!  Check out this quick video from the 2014 Learning Connection Summit.  You may even recognize someone.  Thanks to The GENYOUth Foundation, the Midwest Dairy Council, and Fuel Up to Play 60 for their positive impact in our schools.


Proven school wellness programs like Fuel Up to Play 60 empower students to make positive changes at school and can bring healthy changes to life both in and out of the classroom.  School breakfast programs are especially important and may positively impact children’s nutrition and learning. In fact, research shows that those who eat breakfast have better attention and memory than breakfast skippers and students who are more active during school perform better on standardized tests for reading, math and spelling.

American kids spend more than 2,000 hours in school each year where in-school wellness policies can encourage healthy habits. Schools are an ideal place to promote childhood health and wellness, but they cannot act alone.  Parents, schools and the larger community must work together to affect change for children’s health and wellness in schools.
