The American Journal of Preventative Medicine recently published some research that should change the way our primary schools ‘order’ their day.

When students aren’t itching to get out the door so they can play, they are much more likely to eat more of the things they throw away to most – their fruits and vegetables.  A simple switch – sending the kids out to play before they eat lunch – increased their consumption of fruits and vegetables by 54%.

Calmer students returning to the classroom after eating a good lunch, with no additional costs for the schools – the definition of win/win.
