How You Can Help Fight Childhood Hunger in America
With our concerns about our kids' attention spans at school lately, I've been reading some books about ADHD. We haven't been diagnosed and we're not sure we will even entertain the idea. But, I was interested to see if the books had any tricks for learning focus or non-medication tips for life with ADHD in general. One of the main things that the books stressed was that people need to eat food with protein, especially in the morning. That rule can apply to anyone, not just people with learning differences. Everyone needs a good breakfast to start their day.
It is hard to focus on anything when you're hungry. Unfortunately, there are a lot of kids who go to school hungry in the morning. That usually leaves them hungry for two to three hours until lunch time. That's two to three hours when they can't learn properly because they aren't able to focus.
Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry Initiative is trying to help build an America where there are no hungry kids. Right now, one in five American kids struggles with hunger. Let's begin solving that problem with the first and most important meal of the day--breakfast. You can watch this video for information.
