(BPT) – – Growing evidence from nutritionists and literacy experts suggests access to good nutrition and good books are the building blocks to early learning. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, lack of enough nutritious food impairs a child’s ability to concentrate and perform well in school. Children who have not developed some basic literacy skills by the time they enter school are three to four times more likely to drop out in later years, says the U.S. Department of Education.
