Did you know…

  • Skipping meals is not good for your health!  It can cause your metabolism to slow down; potentially leading to weight gain and/or abnormal body processes. 
  • When you skip a meal, your body goes into survival mode, which can cause your body to store fat and lead to cravings/overeating later on.  Be sure not to miss a meal by visiting your school cafeteria for a variety of delicious and nutritious meals.
