dc.description.abstract The aim of this study was to measure if perceived quality of eating behavior correlates to strong academic performance as measured by student grade point average. Students began by taking a survey designed to assess eating behavior, frequency of food types and choices, academic performance, as well as other lifestyle choices. Data compared included measuring frequency of eating specific meals such as breakfast and lunch, grade point average, and the perception regarding the degree to which quality of nutrition plays in cognition and learning. Thirty-eight students, between 16-18 years old participated in the in-class survey and follow-up Health Psychology unit. Results show there is a minimal positive correlation, .236, between the perceived role nutrition plays in learning and higher, with student average GPA of 3.13 and students reporting eating healthy “often”. en_US
