International School Meals Day 2014 is today!
“A hungry or emotional child cannot develop physically, mentally or emotionally. Healthy eating habits provide the optimum mental and physical health for children and, once established, last a lifetime.” Dr Yibo Wood, Nutritionalist, USA Government Department of Agriculture
