NUTRIMENTHE to showcase results at international conference

On 13-14 September 2013 in Granada, Spain, the NUTRIMENTHE project will present the results of its research into the links between diet and the mental performance of children. This final project conference will provide delegates with a wealth of new information and key messages about how the diet of pregnant women and children can influence mental performance in childhood.

The event will include workshops and keynote lectures from the project partners.

The NUTRIMENTHE project was launched in 2008 to improve knowledge of how pre-natal and childhood nutrition affects later mental performance. The idea that the diet of mothers, infants and children could affect later mental performance has major implications for public health practice and policy development, for our understanding of human biology, as well as for food product development, economic progress and future wealth creation.
