Why fresh fruits, veggies may prevent kids from eating better

Contrary to popular belief, the supermarket’s freezer section or the canned goods aisle could be the path for parents who want to improve their children’s diets.

In a new study, University of Nebraska-Lincoln nutrition researchers asked parents of overweight pre-school and elementary school students why their children didn’t eat more vegetables and fruits. They found that a key stumbling block was parents’ belief that fresh, raw and “natural” vegetables and fruits are healthier for their children than canned or frozen produce.

Study suggests fitness and iron deficiency linked to GPA

Researchers at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and Pennsylvania State University have found that a student’s fitness level and iron status could be the difference between making an A or a B. In the study based at Penn State, evidence suggested female college students who were fit and had normal iron levels achieved higher GPAs than unfit women who were iron deficient. The difference in grade point average was as much as 0.34—enough to drop or increase a letter grade.
