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.

It found that 44 per cent of those who regularly ate junk food behaved badly, compared with only 16 per cent of those who never ate fried or takeaway food. The best foods for academic performance were raw nuts and seeds.
