Brain Food for Kids

Give your children a healthy start in life through balanced diet. Proper nutrition contributes to better physical health. But did you know that the right food also has a significant impact on their brain health?

With the right nutrition, children can develop better brain function, improve their memory and enhance their concentration skills. Like the body, the brain also needs to get the right nutrients.

Here are some of the important food items that your children need to boost their brain power.

Salmon

Instead of tuna sandwiches, make salmon on whole-wheat bread for your kids. Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, salmon promotes brain growth and enhances cognitive function. When regularly given in the right amounts, children will experience an improvement in their mental skills.

Eggs

For a quick and easy-to-make breakfast, serve your kids eggs. Rich in protein, egg whites contribute to your children’s proper development. The yolks, on the other hand, contain choline, which boost your kids’ memory development.

Peanut Butter

Virtually all kids love peanut butter. So this may be an easy treat to serve them. Packed with vitamin E, peanut butter contains antioxidants that protect your children’s nerve membranes. Peanut butter is also rich in thiamin, which is a good nutrient that boosts brain power.

Whole Grains and Oats

Rich in B vitamins, whole grains are good for your children’s nervous system. Look for whole grains in breads and cereals.

Oats or oatmeal, on the other hand, are packed with vitamins E and B complex, which are essential nutrients for your children’s brain. For a tasty treat, serve it with banana, apple, almonds or blueberries.

Milk and Yogurt

Packed with B vitamins, milk and yogurt are crucial food items for your children’s development. With their essential proteins and carbohydrates, they contribute to brain tissue growth. Dairy is also a good source of vitamin D.
