Is your daughter’s grade dropping? Regular exercise and intake of green vegetables, nuts, cereals and dairy can increase the iron level in girls which subsequently can improve your daughter’s grade.

 According to the Karsten Koehler, assistant professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the US, “Low iron stores and low aerobic fitness may prevent female college students from achieving their full academic potential.”
