There is growing recognition that learning disabilities are associated with a variety of factors, including diet. Prior research showed that children in need of special education services eat less home prepared meals and more non-home-prepared meals, which can lead to obesity, inadequate diet, and lethargy. Additional research along with parental health education to promote healthy nutritional decisions and skills for preparing meals is necessary.
