A strategy targeting the most at-risk children is needed to get the most out of school nutrition programs, says a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute.

In “Health and Grades: Nutrition Programs for Kids in Canada”, authors Rosalie Wyonch and Abby Sullivan investigate the potential short and long-term impacts of student nutrition programs, including their relation to student performance and health, and whether a government-supported and universal national student nutrition program should be established for all Canadian children as compared to programs for children in communities at risk.
