Welcome to my blog – “Healthy Food. Healthy Brain.”!
Has your child been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, ADD, Learning Disability, or Developmental Delay? If so, it is critical to understand that the food your child eats can have a major positive or negative impact on his or her brain function. By being knowledgeable about the connection between nutrition and the brain, you can help your child improve his or her nutritional status ultimately enhancing cognition and academic performance.
There are many different nutritional interventions such as special diets, vitamin and mineral supplements, omega-3 fatty acids, nutraceuticals, methyl B12, amino acids, digestive enzymes, probiotics, and nutraceuticals. Parents can become confused and overwhelmed when it comes to nutritional interventions for their child. There is so much information on the Internet, passed along in parent support groups, the media, and from non-medical sources – it is difficult to sift through it all. Healthy Food. Healthy Brain. will provide you with reliable information on nutritional interventions, kid-friendly healthy recipes, articles, practical tips, and updates on current nutrition and ASD/ADHD research.
