How children's diets affect their health, wellbeing and performance - and what parents, professionals and policymakers can do to help
This is a recording of our live webinar and Q&A Session.
Almost every day, we hear that behaviour, learning or mental health problems in children and adolescents are at record levels - and that our education and health services are overwhelmed trying to meet the needs of those affected.
In addition to developmental conditions like ADHD, the autism spectrum, dyslexia and dyspraxia / DCD, many more children - and their families and teachers - are struggling to deal with everyday difficulties, or serious issues, with mood and anxiety, behaviour, learning - and sleep.
Mental and physical health go together - but 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.
Our expert speakers have a wealth of clinical, educational and research experience and knowledge to share on the role that food and diet play in shaping children's mental health and development - for better or for worse.
- David Rex, RD has a lead public health role for Food & Health in schools, nurseries and Children’s Residential Units; and has been providing specialist Dietetic advice for over 20 years advising families of children with autism, ADHD or related conditions.
- Dr Alex Richardson is a world-renowned researcher, educator, speaker and published author; and Founder Director of the UK-based charity, Food and Behaviour (FAB) Research.
The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session – and a few days after the webinar, all attendees will receive handouts of both the speakers’ slides and other information relevant to the topics discussed.
