August 13/Belfast Telegraph -- Children who perform badly at school are more likely to have been affected by the food they ate in their early years rather than what they had for lunch, new research reveals.

Children who ate a junk food diet when they were three made less progress at school, a study by the University of Bristol found. It found that children who ate most junk food at the age of three were 10% less likely to achieve the expected levels of improvement between the ages of six and 10.
