Children are the most vulnerable group in our society and the foundation of every nation, thus their health and nutritional condition are an indicator of how that nation will develop in the future. Nutritional problems in children are a serious concern in both developing and developed countries. Childhood malnutrition can cause physical and mental retardation, stunted growth, and delays in social and emotional development. Many studies on the subject of academic performance have found a strong correlation between healthy eating practices, particularly the regular intake of breakfast, improved grades, increased school attendance, and better classroom behavior. Many of the meals that kids eat today are laden with salt, chemicals, and sugar, which harm them by making them tired, distracted, and sick, among other things, which affects their behavior and performance as well. The parent or guardian should focus more on the child's nutritional status by giving them enough food and nourishment. To acquire healthy eating habits that will assist children throughout their entire lives in reaching their full potential, it is the responsibility of parents and educators to teach them the significance and importance of proper nutrition. For kids to succeed academically, a proper diet is crucial. About the importance of healthy eating, schools must teach both parents and kids.
