This report demonstrates several things: physical activity supports academic achievement, well-nourished kids learn better and healthier practices in schools can increase school revenue. Released in 2013, this report is a roadmap for parents, educators, school administrators and school volunteers to create healthier school environments so the kids in their lives are better positioned to learn. It's a follow-up to Action for Healthy Kids' landmark 2004 report, The Learning Connection: The Value of Improving Nutrition and Physical Activity in Our Schools.
