LIS is committed to providing the very best education for our students both academically and with respect to lifelong skills and habits. To ensure that students are receiving healthy lifestyle skills and physical activity opportunities, our school has created the Healthy Bodies – Healthy Minds program based on scientific research and the advice of expert nutritionists.
If you take a minute to picture the human body as a computer. The ‘hardware’ comprises all the things that the computer is made of. It’s RAM (memory), graphics and processor speed. This is analogous to the nutrition which makes up all of our body parts – the hard and tangible stuff.
Now think of ‘software’, these are the programs like Microsoft office, Windows 10, Mac, IOS, Android and Linux. This is the information, the knowledge, the teachings and the lessons students are exposed to.
If the computer is using poor hardware, and fuelled with a faulty battery, broken graphics card and cheap memory storage (poor nutrition), it doesn’t matter how great the software you use is, the hardware is really the core issue that needs to be dealt with first. We need to start with nutrition.
HBHM is an innovative nutrition program for students, parents and educators. It provides scientific research, set menu’s and a practical philosophy that will help guide future generations in the right direction.
1. We are asking for 2 things from parents: collaboration with the school in offering healthy food to their children
2. Providing the right food for their children at home too, we want the message to be consistent to really get the best results.
