Abstract : 
The present article aimed to investigate the impact of nutrition on the academic achievement of the 3rd grade male students in Dezful during 2013-14 school years. This was a causal-comparative research. The statistical population included all third graders in Dezful city out of which 200 were chosen as the sample using multi-stage cluster random sampling method. The data were obtained through health records of the students, which included personal features, weight and height of each student that were recorded by standard tools and weight standard curves for BMI, weight based on age and developmental status, and a checklist for students' daily use of the major food groups which was completed by the parents. In order to assess the academic performance of the students, a researcher-made test of the 3rd grade mathematics was used based on the objectives and content of the coursebook. In addition, in order to control the intelligence variable, Raven's colored intelligence test for children was drawn upon. This test contains 36 matrices in each of which one part is not given and the participant is required to choose the removed part out of 6 options. In the end, the data were analyzed using ANCOVA (univariate analysis of covariance test). The results showed a significant relationship between the academic achievement of the 3rd male graders having adequate nutrition and those suffering from malnutrition with controlling intelligence in mathematics with 95% confidence. In other words, these results indicate the effect of intelligence on academic achievement in mathematics for the group suffering from malnutrition.
