Nutrition can play an important role in the prevention and management of many kinds of difficulties in behaviour, learning and mood. These include:

  • Everyday difficulties in behaviour, learning or mood that can affect children and adults - at home, at school or in the workplace.
  • Developmental conditions - such as ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and autistic spectrum disorders.
  • Mental health conditions - such as anxiety, depression, bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder and schizophrenia.

Diet is important not only for physical health, but also for optimal mental development and functioning. Scientific evidence shows this, but clear and reliable information on this kind of research is not easily available to many people who are interested in its practical applications.

As well as our own published papers and factsheets, we regularly trawl through the scientific press to bring you the latest information on the subject of nutrition and behavioural disorders. In some cases, these resources will link to information held on other websites, and in others, they will offer information to download in pdf format. If the resource is a book, we will give you a link directly to Amazon for you to purchase it directly.

FAB Research also aims to promote, support and carry out further scientific research in this area.

Further information will be added to this site on a regular basis. - If you would like to stay updated with the latest news and research in this area, please sign up for our free Email alerts. - If you would like to help support our work, please tell others about FAB Research, and join our associate scheme.
