INFOGRAPHIC: Energy saves the day

Here are some facts to help parents understand the role of energy and how it can help children become champions in their own right

MANILA, Philippines – Most children that are already studying start their day early, five times a week. They get out of bed, take a shower, put on their uniform, have a healthy breakfast and brush their teeth. Occasionally, they would be scrambling for a school project or the baon that they almost forgot to bring with them before they head out the door.

Just as a car needs gas to run, the mind and body need to be fueled up by energy. Food is the main source of energy of the brain, but the right food will determine how well physical and mental tasks are performed throughout the day.
