Food Affects Mood:

Chartwells is teaching children how the foods they eat affect their mood.  This month on the Food Ambassador Day, students will be encouraged to try pineapple.  Did you know pineapple has many mood enhancing benefits? It provides a quick energy boost soon after it's eaten as well as providing lots of fiber, which helps to slow down the digestion process leaving you happier and fuller for longer.
