Recess is Sensory Nutrition for the Brain!
You would not take lunch away from a child at school if he/she did not complete an assignment right? Of course not! Nutrition from food has been established as valuable and important for healthy brain development and essential in helping the brain and body get through the school day. This exact same concept applies to sensory nutrition...it is absolutely critical to assist the brain in maintaining ready state and to self-regulate throughout the day. Not only that...sensory nutrition is the key to thinking, learning, attention to task, mood, behavior, and the list goes on! It it so important to realize that sensory nutrition for the brain is equally important for academic success...we must educate our schools on this concept.
