Due to the demands of growth and development, getting adequate protein is particularly important during infancy, childhood, and adolescence. Due to funding constraints, children at Odoi Atsem School were getting very little protein in their diets, impacting their ability to learn and their overall health. Our Protein Power project supplements their school lunches with eggs or fish to provide this important nutrient.
For many students at Nurturing Nations school, school lunch is the only meal they can count on receiving each day. However, one meal a day isn't always enough to keep the pangs of hunger at bay. Optimum learning occurs when bodily needs are taken care of, so our Breakfast Boost program allows our students to begin their day with a good meal so they can then focus on their studies and enjoy improved health.
