TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Is your child struggling in school?

Studies show that nutrition can have an impact on your child's behavior. That's why the Dyslexia Research Institute is hosting an upcoming seminar educating parents on how to manage.

Robyn Rennick, program director of Dyslexia Research Institute/Woodland Hall Academy, says kids with ADHD and other developmental disorder are particularly affected.

Not getting the right nutrition can make children tired, give them mood swings and make it harder for them to concentrate.

Rennick recommends watching the kinds of food you let your children eat. She says shopping around the outside of the grocery store can help you be sure you're getting fresh and nutritional options, and not processed food.

The 'How Nutrition Affects Behavior' seminar is Thursday, October 22, from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. It's at Woodland Hall Academy (5246 Centerville Road). Tickets are $10.
