The impact of diet on academic achievement is a growing area of research, and while reviews in children and adolescents suggest there is an association between healthier dietary intake and higher academic achievement, this is the first systematic review to evaluate this in college/university students. Five of the seven studies included in this review reported small to moderate significant positive associations between diet and academic achievement, covering criteria for breakfast, regular meal consumption, and meeting national recommendations for fruit intake. The findings demonstrate that further research is needed to determine the association between dietary intake and academic achievement in this population group, and provide direction for future research on the topic. This is an important area for research, given the wealth of studies on the unhealthy diets of university students. View this paper
