Nutrition matters all through our lives, for mental as well as physical health and wellbeing. But for children, whose brains and bodies are growing rapidly, it’s especially important.
Poor diets can affect children’s mood, behaviour and ability to learn - not just their risks for obesity and other health problems. But as even doctors and other health professionals receive little training in how nutrition affects physical health - let alone health and development of the brain - how can teachers and education professionals be expected to make sense of the complicated evidence in this area?
