For every man survival and healthy living for a meaningful existence, food is highly essential. What is eaten and the feeding habits will also essentially be predominant factors in determining certain tasks and achievements. This study aimed at finding the relationship between students’ feeding habits and their academic performance in mathematics. A couple of related texts were reviewed which centred on different feeding patterns, ideal feeding habit as well as its relationship with academic achievement. The study is only limited to students of the Department of Mathematics, Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo. Structured questionnaires were used to in carrying out the study. With three hypotheses tested, results showed that students who eat insufficiently are likely to perform less in their academics, students who eat moderately well do perform better in mathematics and that good feeding habit enhance better academic performance 

in mathematics. These findings from the study obviously reveal the strong impact of feeding habit on academic performance in Mathematics and hence give relevant recommendations to assist students’ feeding mode to enhance better academic performance in Mathematics.
