Scientists and educators agree that good nutrition in children leads to higher cognitive function, increased learning and improved behaviour. On Wednesday morning, Dr Thao, from International SOS, gave a presentation at the coffee morning on the subject of nutrition. A large group of parents were appreciative of the opportunity to hear what Dr Thao had to say and to ask questions on this topic. Dr Thao will be returning to TX in May to talk to us about medication for children.
If you were unable to join us, or would like a refresher on the information Dr Thao provided, the slides from her presentation are below:

Dr Thao also referred several times to the growth charts produced by the World Health Organisation. These charts show the percentiles of children at different heights and weights. Below are links to growth charts produced by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health:
