The Institute for Food, Brain & Behaviour

The Institute for Food, Brain and Behaviour exists to improve the lives of individuals and communities by conducting research into the link between nutrition and behaviour, promoting public understanding and working to effect policy change.

For over 20 years, IFBB, and its predecessor organisations, Natural Justice and the South Cumbria Alternative Sentencing Options, have been working to understand the link between nutrition brain function and behaviour. We recognise the need for the proper nourishment that the body needs to function properly, and also the need of the human brain for proper nutrition in order to work properly and fulfil its potential. Our work began in the mid-1980s when it was suggested that nutrition could play a role in minimising recidivism in young offenders.
