About the Seminar

FAB’s seminar, ‘Food, Mood, Behaviour and Learning,’ is aimed at a multi-disciplinary audience of professionals, policy makers, and interested groups and individuals. It will give all participants the chance to hear about, and to discuss, the links between nutrition and mood, behaviour and learning in children and adults - both in the general population, and in special groups such as those with developmental or mental health conditions. Find out how our food choices, and those of the people we care or provide for, can affect mood, wellbeing and performance – at home, at school or in the workplace.

For discussion:

• How does what we eat affect the way we feel, think and behave?

• What are the implications for conditions like ADHD, dyslexia or autism?

• What’s the evidence that dietary interventions could reduce antisocial behaviour?

• Can diet help in the prevention and management of mental health conditions like depression,psychosis and dementia?

• Improving food choices: what can be done, and who should be doing it?

• What is the impact of modern day diets, and their implications for the public health crisis?

• What can be done to improve outcomes for both current and future generations?

This seminar will provide you with opportunities to not only learn about the latest research findings, but also to discover answers that may influence some of the decisions you make every day.

The seminar fee is just £15 per person (£10 for Associate Members), and includes refreshments, conference notes, and certification in support of professional development
