Food For Thought

Children who are malnourished or even those that are experiencing short-term hunger have limited capacities to learn. School feeding programs are a way to reduce hunger and improve the nutrition of children so that they are able to concentrate, understand and perform well in class. The meals that they receive at school contribute a great deal to better nourishment, good health and better academic performance for those children and their thinking capacity is improved. This also helps in the reduction of the burden of school drop-outs and diseases for society and government to bear.Therefore school feeding programmes should be implemented by every government in primary schools especially those that are in the rural areas.
