Educator Identifies “Malnutrition of the Brain”

New book connects nutrition to neurofunction, with focus on kids

Skokie, Illinois – WEBWIRE

In a society completely preoccupied with health and wellness, no one should be surprised to learn that nutrition is connected to brain function. But is this knowledge being applied to children? And in particular, those who are falling behind at school?
After years of teaching children with attention deficit disorder (ADD and ADHD), learning disabilities and severe behavior problems, Dr. Susan Augustine began researching the brain and biochemistry to find solutions. In “The Hungry Brain: The Nutrition/Cognition Connection,” she shares her findings.
Children and adults alike suffer from malnutrition of the brain and biochemical disorders that affect mood, mind, memory and behavior. By making “smart” choices for the hungry brain, Augustine explains how to improve holistic health, for children in particular.
This book will be of special interest to educators. As the educational community faces challenges including childhood obesity and food allergies, teachers are eager to guide their students in caring for their bodies and feeding their developing minds.
Dr. Augustine provides a simplified version of the food groups and demonstrates why breakfast is still the most important meal of the day for every child—but especially the child with learning or behavior challenges.
With practical strategies for teaching nutrition as part of a lifelong learning strategy, “The Hungry Brain” provides a teaching resource that teachers can easily integrate into their curricula.
