Adding a few key super foods to your kid’s diet each day is an easy way to help your children to take on the many challenges of their demanding schedules. By adding the following foods you may increase your kids brain function, promote overall brain health, and prepare your kids for a bright future.

Super Brain Foods

Avocados are super food for kids. They contain omega three fatty acids, which are necessary for the brain to function properly. Pack some guacamole and chips in their lunch box.

Eggs are rich in choline which helps promotes memory and brain development. Also eggs provide long-lasting satiety because of its protein power. They are a great for breakfast or snack- hard-boiled or deviled.

Whole grains, such as oatmeal, brown rice and whole grain breads contain phytonutrients, folate and B vitamins that boost memory. Pack some whole grain crackers and pair them with cheese or nut butter of choice.

Deep water fish like salmon are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to healthy brain function. Wild Salmon also contains low numbers of contaminants and it is easy to find both fresh and in cans. Eating salmon helps memory, mood and concentration. Make salmon patties, or use salmon instead of tuna on sandwiches.

Protein is for concentration it helps kids feel full longer, avoiding a sharp drop in blood sugar. Choosing protein sources that are raised humanely and are fed a proper diet, or pastured, are your best bets. Pack your kids pinwheels with organic turkey, cheese on a whole grain tortillas.

Organic fruit: berries, grapes, apples, pears and seasonal fruits are rich in antioxidants like vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and fiber. The fiber in fruit also helps the digestive system. Berries in particular contain high amounts of phytonutrients like anthocyanin that promote high brain function and help to preserve memory function.

Nuts and seeds: A serving of pumpkin seeds offers a mammoth amount of good things to help your children’s brains, bodies and immune systems. A quarter cup contains 92% of your daily value for magnesium, which helps with several body systems including cognitive function and mood. Zinc helps prevent infection and boost immune system. Try roasting them or adding them to muffins and oatmeal.

Filtered water: Dehydration can lead to fatigue, fogginess, and more, so drinking plenty of water is crucial to keeping concentration and energy levels high. Send a fun BPA free water bottle with your kids to school instead of fruit juices or other sugary drinks.
