How Poor Nutrition Affects your Child’s Mental Health

Recent studies have shown that one in six children aged 8 -14 years old in Australia are going to school or bed hungry. This lack of nutrition in a young child’s diet has been linked to causing a risk of Mental Health and could actually be harming a child’s long-term wellbeing.
