Through this attempt, children are also evaluated and checked by health practitioners to ascertain their health and general nutrition. As such children are guaranteed of a balanced diet both at home and in school. They are also guaranteed of proper medical care which also happens to determine the general performance of the child. As part of creating a healthy society, this resource centers on ensuring that school-going children and youth are at least provided with a balanced diet at school and at home to ensure that they gain both physical and intellectual health (Department for Education and Skills, 2012).
