Academic Performance

Research increasingly supports the important link between nutrition and learning potential. Healthy eating is essential for children to achieve their full academic potential, mental growth, and lifelong health and well-being. When children are not receiving proper nutrition they are unable to reach their full potential.

Nutrition can have a profound effect on brain development, concentration, and school performance. A few examples include:

  • lack of iron can affect brain development, concentration and alertness
  • omega-3 essential fatty acids can affect concentration and behaviour
  • low glycaemic index foods can provide a steady fuel source for the brain

If you want to ensure that your child is receiving the optimal diet, please get in touch to arrange a dietary assessment and advice.
