Feeding Better Mood, Behaviour, Learning & Sleep
How children's diets affect their health, wellbeing and performance - and what parents, professionals and policymakers can do to help.
Although children's diets are recognised as contributing to conditions like obesity, diabetes and other physical health problems, little or no attention is usually paid to the effects of nutrition - what children eat and drink - and how they feel, think and behave.
Professor Crawford has been warning about the risk of a global mental health crisis fuelled by poor nutrition - for over 50 years. His predictions - based on sound scientific evidence - have proved all too accurate.
Hear his compelling arguments on why the current worldwide decline in brain health was entirely predictable - and crucially, what we must do to reverse it.
