A child’s diet and lifestyle can widely reflect on their performance academically. According to the British Dietetic Association (BDA) low iron levels can be linked with poor mood and concentration. A diet high in omega 3 promotes good brain development and can improve attention span. Low levels of magnesium and zinc can affect sleep and cause anxiety, affecting attention.

Many children don’t understand how skipping breakfast or skipping meals can affect their learning ability. There is evidence that eating breakfast leads to better learning than not having breakfast. Equally, consuming refined carbohydrates or foods high in sugar can cause the brain to release cortisol. Cortisol can affect memory.

Education and raising awareness are the keys to changing eating and lifestyle behaviours in children.

Therefore, our programmes are necessary for schools also in helping to improve pupil performance in key subjects like Maths, English and Science.
