It was just a regular stop at the gas station to fill up my '99 Nissan Paid-for: I go through the steps, get the fuel flowing so I can get home to my favorites. With nothing to think about, I looked at the 87, 89, and 91 octanes and thought: "If I put premium in my car would it run better? Maybe get better gas mileage? Help it last a few more years? Not sure, but I just can't afford to do it."
If the same questions were asked of the fuel we put into our bodies, the answer would be a resounding YES!
Yes, you will "run" better if you put better, higher quality food into your body. Proper nutrition offers more energy, healthier joints, and more flexible muscles for increased stamina and less pain.
Yes, your child will function better if fueled with excellent nutrition. Improve your child's breakfast and lunch on school days, and they will have increased attention span at school and less volatile blood sugar levels offering more consistent energy and focus.
