Conference aims:

  • To enquire whether the effect of diet on behaviour and learning is sufficiently well established to inform educational policy and practice
  • To identify reliable sources of information to which educators can refer with confidence
  • To explore the practicality of adopting practices which would significantly affect student diet, to the extent that such changes would also affect behaviour and learning
  • To examine case studies and investigate good practice from comparable Institutions, including sources of project work to focus student attention on managing their diet and behaviour
