Back on the home front, the foursome of vegan bloggers is fully committed to finding new tacos and creating new combinations at home.
Mothers’ poor diets lead to child behavioural problems
Weve known for quite some time that very early life nutrition, including the nutrition received while the child is in utero, is related to physical health outcomes in children their risk for later heart disease or diabetes for example, a member of the team says. But this is the first study indicating that diet is also important to mental health outcomes in children. Depression and anxiety disorders account for some of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Recent research has established that diet and nutrition are related to the risk for these common mental disorders in adults and adolescents but no studies have examined the impact of very early life nutrition and its relationship to mental health in children until now. This latest research, funded by the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, involved more than 23,000 mothers and their children participating in a large, ongoing Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa). The study gathered detailed information on mothers’ diets during pregnancy and their children’s diets at 18 months and three years. Children’s symptoms of depression, anxiety, conduct disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder at 18 months, three years and five years of age were reported by parents using well-established questionnaire methods. The relationship of mothers’ diets, and the diets of the children, to the mental health symptoms and behaviours in children over the ages 18 months to five years was then examined, taking into account many other factors that may have explained these relationships. The results of the study, published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, suggest that mothers follow who eat more unhealthy foods, such as refined cereals, sweet drinks and salty snacks, during pregnancy have children with more behavioural problems, such as tantrums and aggression. It also shows that children who eat more unhealthy foods during the first years of their life, or who do not eat enough nutrient-rich foods, such as vegetables, exhibit more of these externalising behaviours, as well as increased internalising behaviours indicative of depression and anxiety. These relationships were independent of other factors that may explain these links, such as the socio-economic circumstances or mental health of the parents. The researchers say that as the negative impact of unhealthy foods on the waistline of a population grows, so does the evidence suggesting that mental health is also affected.
