Recess before lunch

Asked February 22, 2017, 4:04 PM EST

Hello! We are in the process of revising our District Wellness Policy and trying to convince some of our schools that recess before lunch is beneficial. Could you send me a link or some information regarding how this can be beneficial vs. the cons that come with this change? Thanks!
