Brain Foods for Kids

Did you know that certain foods can help to support children’s brain growth and development as well as improving brain function, memory and concentration?

The way that the human brain develops during pregnancy and the first few years of life can be likened to scaffolding. Nerves in the brain grow and connect, which creates the systems that decide how a child thinks and feels.

During the first three years of your child’s life, their brain triples in weight and establishes about 1000 trillion nerve connections. These connections impact sensory systems, learning, memory, attention, processing speed, the ability to control impulses and mood, and even the ability to multitask or plan.

We know that diet plays a major role in brain function.

Check out these top brain-boosting foods to support optimal brain health in your children.

  1. Eggs

  2. Fatty fish

  3. Whole grains

  4. Green Veggies

  5. Berries

  6. Nuts

The Bottom Line:

With so many brain-boosting foods available, as long as you eat a balanced diet with loads of variety, there’s no doubt your child’s brain will get all the love and nurture it deserves.
