In this workshop, we will explore the connection between nutrition and brain function. Nutrition plays an important role in brain development from conception to 3 years of age. Infant and child cognitive development is dependent on adequate nutrition. The developing human brain requires all essential nutrients to form and maintain its structure. Children who do not receive sufficient nutrition are at high risk of exhibiting impaired cognitive skills. This is a Food Program sponsored training.
