Food and Behaviour Research

Nutrition can play an important role in behaviour, learning and mood. Scientific evidence shows that diet is important not only for physical health, but also for optimal mental development and functioning.

The FAB website offers information on a wide range of conditions such as ADHD, autism, dyspraxia, anxiety, depression and many other physical and mental issues.

The site presents clear and reliable information on the latest research for 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 up to date information on the subject of nutrition and behavioural disorders.

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