Review:

‘Her book offers welcome hope to parents who may be at their wits’ end … illuminating.’ TES, June 2006

‘Jamie Oliver visited [Alex's department] while preparing his series on school dinners. It was the hard-slog science of the physiology department that gave credibility to the link between children's diet and their behaviour that Oliver made so powerfully in his TV programmes.’ Guardian (May 05)

‘Food affects behaviour. If you paid attention to diet, you could really make a difference.’ Guardian (May 05)

‘It's imperative that while upping your intake of omega-3, you cut out the junk.’ Alex quoted in Independent March 2005
