Nutrition and Childhood Neuropsychological Disorders

Nutrition is the relationship of foods to health. Adequate nutrition is essential for normal organ development and functioning; for normal reproduction, growth, and maintenance; for optimum activity level and working efficiency; for resistance to infection and disease; and for the ability to repair bodily damage or injury (Kirschmann, 1981). Malnutrition, on the other hand, is not solely undernutrition but includes all forms of nutritional deficits; it exists whenever inadequate amounts of essential nutrients are supplied to tissues and organ systems. From infancy to maturity, the brain and body experience tremendous growth and development. Heredity and environment jointly affect the development and functional effectivities of organ systems that, in total, determine each child’s developmental potential. However, too seldom considered within this scheme is the fact that nutrition is of primary importance for the expression of psychological as well as physical capabilities.
