Abstract

The postinfancy period is crucial for normal brain development, providing subsequent optimal conditions for learning and cognition. Both iron deficiency and essential fatty acids deficiency may impair normal neurological development. This review examines the limited number of studies that have been performed in preschool children and offers a broader view of the relationships among nutrition, nutrients and cognition.
