Childrens Attendance Improves With Fruit

In a remote Queensland Australian school in a remote area children’s attendance has gone from 78%-91% in just under a year all due to fruit now being given out at school at breakfast and lunch! Many indigenous peoples there can’t afford to purchase such produce as they are expensive.

Teachers have also noted improvements to their attention spans, skin and attitudes.
