Too hungry to learn: New research provides food for thought
from Lancaster University via Science Daily
Food insecurity — that is, limited access to sufficient safe and nutritious food at home — negatively impacts on the learning ability of adolescents in India, new research shows. The research team investigated inequalities in learning achievements at 12 years by examining test scores. They then looked at whether food insecurity at home at the ages of 5, 8 and 12 was linked to lower test scores at age 12.
