Remembering to eat breakfast and walk to school? "Eating right and being active are essential for school suc- cess," says Kim Andersen, prin- cipal at Central Middle School in Whitefish. "Students who are nutritionally and physically fit have the energy, stamina, self- esteem and brainpower to do well in the classroom and on the athletic field." Studies show that both nutrition and fitness can have a significant impact on daily attendance, class- ur. Greg room participation, test scores and even behavior. Brain research indicates that power nutrition combined with physical activity leads to optimal learning - and helps all students make the grade. Andersen has firsthand experi- ence with the power of provid- ing healthy options to children at school. "Changes in the foods we offer to kids have helped reduce discipline problems and improve the overall learning environment at Central Middle School," Andersen said. "We have eliminated pop, candy and other foods of minimal nutrition value from our vending machines and cafeteria lines." The students at Central, and hundreds of other schools across the country, are happily chugging water and juice - and chowing down on bagels, yogurt, fruit and low-fat sub sandwiches. Many studies prove that students will buy, and enjoy, healthful foods and bev- erages when they are readily available to them. According to Andersen, the "secret" is to involve the whole school in creating a healthy nutrition environment. "The kids helped choose the items they would buy; the PTA helped pur- chase a vending machine for fresh foods; and the school food- service staff made nutritious changes in the cafeteria." Eat Right Montana, a statewide coalition promoting healthful eating and active lifestyles, urges all Montanans to support healthy options in their local schools. Simple changes in vending machine fare and P.E. programs can pro- mote academic success and life- long health for all children. "Serving nutrition at school has made a big difference for our students, teachers and families," Andersen said.
