The development of the physical health of children has come to be regarded as an important part of education. A better understanding of the relation of diet to disease has resulted in studies of the food habits and health habits of children with a view to improving them. Through studies made by doctors and dietitians, it has been found that health depends to a very large extent on correct eating habits, and that children must have food in proper quantities and of the right kind. Physical health is essential to the development of mental and moral health, which make for effective living, growth and development. Therefore it is very necessary that children form correct eating habits while they are young.
