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
