Brain Food

The food we eat has a big impact on our physical and mental health. It affects our energy levels, our mood, our sleep quality, our ability to focus, and the ways we react to stress. In this presentation, we’ll explore what a balanced diet looks like, how certain foods can help or hurt our mental health, and some easy recipes to keep our brains fuelled
