Abstract

Behavioral problems such as hyperactivity, learning disabilities, mental illness, aggressive and antisocial behavior, and juvenile delinquency have been purportedly linked to the potential influence of foods or nutrients. This article examines the scientific evidence of the relationship between food and behavior in children and adolescents. It highlights the implications for practitioners important to consider in the assessment of the relationship between diet and behavior.
