Welcome to the NUTRIMENTHE Project

NUTRIMENTHE was a research project funded by the European Commission through its 7th Framework Programme.  The project looked at the role that diet plays in the mental performance of children. The project, which began on the 1st March 2008 involved scientists from 20 organisations from nine countries worldwide.  It was coordinated by Professor Cristina Campoy from the University of Granada, Spain, and ran until December 31st 2013.  For more details about the research that was undertaken visit our "About the Project" page.  Alternatively, visit the new project results and key messages page here:
