How diet affects children's behaviour, learning and mood
What we feed our children is at the heart of political and public debate - primarily in relation to physical health and well-being. However, a growing body of evidence now supports the view that the right nutrition is just as important for the optimal mental development and functioning of children. In terms of the policy challenge to promote holistic health and well-being, the link between diet and behaviour is a crucial part of this agenda.
Are the many behaviour problems which impact upon learning, teaching and welfare of our children diet related? How does the food we are feeding children affect their brains - and what can be done about it?
This one day conference will focus on how food affects children's behaviour, learning and mood: in particular the potential links between food and the growth of known disorders such as ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Autistic Spectrum.
An essential conference for educators, healthcare professionals and others involved with the care and well-being of children and young people.
