Nurse Debbie's Corner

Eat your breakfast, it’s good for your brain! All too often during the first hours of school, students come to the health room “just not feeling well”. When asked if they had breakfast, sometimes the answer is “no”. We know that mornings can be hectic, and even getting out the door can be a huge accomplishment, so finding a few minutes to make sure your student has a healthy breakfast at home or school may be a bit of a challenge. Breakfast is truly a very important meal. Students who skip breakfast may spend the morning feeling tired, restless and irritable. They may have stomach aches or headaches, and it can have a negative effect on how their brain processes the information they receive in class. On the other hand, a student who eats a healthy breakfast made up of whole grains, fiber and protein (and limited sugar), can give them the energy they need to make it through the morning, and gives them the fuel their brain needs to stimulate learning in the classroom.
