There is evidence that people with higher levels of education are more health conscious, live longer, and in ‘healthier’ environments. Nevertheless, the educational level of a family interacts with social status. This often results in a vicious circle of low social status, fewer opportunities for education and participation, and the severity of illnesses.
Who should take action for health and education – the parents, the school, or both?
These examples already show that the issue of “health and school” is always about parents and schools taking on their own part of the responsibilities. And it is also understandable that success is greater when parents and schools are on the same page and in the same direction.
Schools can draw attention to the importance of healthy nutrition. Parents can support their children positively with the nutrition they offer.
