Fruit and veg linked to kids' school
Fruit and vegetable consumption and dietary fat intake were found to play an important role in children's academic performance, highlighting yet again the need for balanced diets at an early age. Children's nutrition has been permanently in the headlines in recent years, as the effects of an unhealthy diet - primarily obesity and early signs of diabetes - are invreasingly manifested in children around the world.

The contribution of diet to academic performance is nothing new.  However, most research so far has focused on the effects of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiency, as well as the effects of breakfast on cognition. 

The new study published in the Journal of School Health builds on existing knowledge in the area by identifying specific dietary factors that contribute to the association between children's nutrition and academic performance.

Researchers led by Dr Paul Veugelers of the School of Public Health, University of Alberta, surveyed 5,000 grade 5 students in Nova Scotia, Canada in 2003.
