The main questions at a glance


Concentration and attention


What is concentration?
Concentration is the ability to gather your inner thoughts and focus all your powers on one special target. Disturbances are not perceived. For everyday school life this means: being able to pay undivided attention to one learning matter for a certain period of time. The demands on children are getting higher and higher.
The flood of information and external stimuli, which parents and children cannot influence, are continuously increasing. Children who cannot concentrate have problems targeting their attention. They are easily distracted and drift off because they have to work up so many impressions at the same time. They are restless, appear inattentive, make careless mistakes and forget things easily. 

What is impaired concentration?
Impaired concentration is a passing difficulty. Temporary unfocused behaviour can have many reasons, amongst others: too high or too low demands, a lack of physical exercise, an unbalanced diet, too much time in front of the TV or computer. However, impaired concentration does not need to be accepted. Specific training programmes can have a big influence. Furthermore, a change in the diet can have a positive effect.

How can I tell if my child has AD(H)D?
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder ( ADHD) can only be diagnosed by a specialist. AD(H)D is marked by pronounced inattentive and impulsive behaviour, particularly in group situations and often by visible agitation and inner restlessness. The disorder appears during the early years of childhood. It is not only temporary, but lasts for at least longer than six months.

What can I do to boost my child’s powers of concentration?
Today, children are very stretched by daily stress and altered habits as far as their attention and concentration are concerned. That is why it is important to make sure that they get enough sleep and have a certain amount of time during the day for relaxing (doing nothing). Computer games or TV programmes often lead to stimulus satiation in children. They should therefore only be allowed at certain times and not for long.

Omega fatty acids


Can I also get my omega fatty acid requirements from the food I eat?
Yes, valuable omega fatty acids are contained in cold-water fish such as herring, mackerel, salmon, sardines and tuna. You should eat two portions of fish a week to meet your omega fatty acid requirements.

What does essential mean?
Essential nutrients, such as omega fatty acids, are vital for the body. Because the body cannot produce these essential nutrients itself, it needs to get them from food.

What do EPA and DHA stand for?
EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids. EPA stands for eicosapentaenoic acid. DHA stands for docosahexaenoic acid. GLA is an omega-6-fatty acid and stands for gamma-linolenic acid.
