Evidence suggests that good nutrition is just as important for our mental health as it is to our physical health. As well as impacting on shorter-term mental health, the evidence indicates that food plays an important role in the development, management and prevention of specific health problems such as depression, ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease.
At Project Food we are currently running a course about the link between the food we eat and how this makes us feel, mentally as well as physically. It’s a wide-ranging topic and there’s a huge amount of information out there, so in this month’s newsletter we’re going to simplify things and give you the low-down on ‘food and mood’’.
