This full-colour cookbook is designed to help parents improve their child's diet. The ground-breaking Food for the Brain study, in which Patrick and his team worked with parents, teachers and school caterers to improve children's nutrition, showed dramatic improvements in energy, mood and concentration amongst the children following the study guidelines. The aim of this book is to share those guidelines and the recipes that produced such great results. Each recipe is carefully designed to provide optimum nourishment to aid with mental development, behaviour and academic performance. Smart Food for Smart Kids also contains menu plans and practical advice on planning, shopping, eating out and dealing with fussy eaters.
