Empowering Parents

Welcome to the CNP Parent Resource Library!

The CNP Parent Resource Library consolidates findings on how dietary intake patterns influence the child and adolescent populations. Within today’s Westernized dietary landscape, the “eat your broccoli — it’s good for you!” approach isn’t working.

More sophisticated tools are needed to surmount the new dietary landscape, and to help kids make choices more supportive of their mood, behavior and mental health. That’s why CNP is creating innovative curriculum in Nutritional Psychology for children and adolescents – to help them develop a more internalized awareness of how the foods they eat (their daily dietary intake patterns) impact the way they think, feel and behave.

If you are a parent working to understand how food is impacting your child’s mental health, behavior, and well-being, we invite you to use our Parent Resource Library to keep up with what’s being discovered around the world. For information on how diet affects children with special neurodevelopmental needs, visit the CNP Neurodevelopmental Resource Library page.
