Spotlight On Health


Are you hungry again?


Eating is something we all do! Most children eat three meals a day and most kids snack. Why do kids snack? Because kids need to refuel their body, especially when they are active - like playing games, running, walking, jumping, swinging, etc. Everything you do takes energy and eating correctly helps you make energy. Without energy - your body and your brain get tired.


A good rule of thumb with snacks though, is if you aren’t hungry, don’t eat and don’t snack too close to meal-times. It’s very important to eat your well balanced meal. It’s also never good to eat food because you are bored or just watching television. Over-doing on snacks is never a good idea.
