Jamie Oliver brought the sorry state of Britain's school dinners to everyone's attention. Patrick Holford goes one step further and proves the link between children's nutrition and their mental health. His Food for the Brain campaign is being implemented in primary schools in order to radically improve the diet of children and record the results. This full-colour cookbook based on the campaign is aimed at parents with young children. It contains 100 simple, tasty dishes which will appeal to the whole family. 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.
Patrick Holford is founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London. He is Britain's top nutrition expert and is the author of over 20 health books, including The Holford Low-GL Diet, and the blockbuster Patrick Holford's New Optimum Nutrition Bible, which has sold over 1 million copies in 30 countries.
