Kids Brain Food

IMG_1503

Kids need lots of brain food to keep up with their school work. The main source of energy for the brain is carbohydrates, especially complex ones that give long lasting energy like whole grain bread, fruits with their skins, and oatmeal. More than half of the brain cells are made up of healthy omega-3 fatty cells. Foods rich in omega-3 are soybeans, walnuts, flaxseed, and Chia seeds. Other healthy fats like olive oil, avocados, and pecans help build the wall that surrounds the brain. Kids need 9 -12 hours of sleep for a healthy brain to think creatively and pay attention. Eating healthy brain super food like fresh organic blueberries can improve learning capacity and motor skills needed for school. Kids’ bodies need lots of nutrients and a breakfast of oatmeal, blueberries, and whole grain toast starts the day off right. Kids that eat a good breakfast are able to solve math problems better, be more energetic, and remember clearly what they have learned.
