Nutrition and Behavior.
American Psychologist, v44 n2 p231-36 Feb 1989
Addresses nutritional problems associated with developmental problems in infancy and childhood. Nutritional problems are often linked to environmental disadvantage; the possibility exists for long-term developmental effects. Treatment for undernutrition does not appear to reverse all negative effects. Prevention of nutritional disorders is better than treatment in eradicating behavioral and developmental problems.
