Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are! Brilat savarin

We are sure that like us, most of you would agree that there is no greater influence on our health than the food we eat. It appears however, that as the quality of our food has declined so has the rise in any number of related conditions, what we see in schools only serves to reflect this as we witness the growing numbers of overweight children, and the increase in attention problems and other behavioral challenges.

"There is a body of evidence which links children’s diets to their immediate and long-term health, whilst experience from schools suggests when children eat a balanced diet they find it easier to concentrate in the classroom and their behaviour is significantly improved.

Diet is increasingly being seen as central to unlocking the potential of children as well as being critical to their health. Improved nutrition and food habits can play a part in enhancing well-being and emotional welfare, and are an important part of addressing the need to reduce the number of overweight and obese children.
