An online survey of 10,000 parents has found that children who eat fry-ups and takeaways are three times more likely to be badly behaved.

Parents taking part in the survey, run by educational charity Food for the Brain and sponsored by food company Organix, were asked about their children's health, behaviour and academic performance.
