Healthy eating for smarter kids

It is three weeks before the end of the school holidays! Here are some tip on how to make our kids smarter by feeding them properly.

There are some superfood for super kids and why it is so healthy and essential. By the way, I am not vegan, but I believe that consuming products like dairy leads to inflammation in body, so I skip it in my family and also recommend to do same for my clients. Please see you GP before making diet changes for your kids.

So let's start! Omega 3: Essential fatty acids help to provide building blocks for nerve system and brain cells development. Low level of omega 3 leads to poor reading skills and poor memory function. Where to find: Flaxseed oil, ground flaxseed, wild salmon, walnuts, hemp oil (if it's legal in your country), chia seeds oil, chia seeds.

Seeds: They are a great natural source of vitamins, minerals, protein, fat and fiber. Vitamins of group B are important, but I am going to single out superstar vitamin B5, which is also known as pantothenic acid. This key nutrient contributes to normal mental performance – so for the brain it’s simple, eat seeds. Where to find: Raw pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds, hemp (if its legal in your country)

Oats: oats are a storehouse of energy and nutrition and provide excellent balance of sugar in the blood. Fiber rich oats can be used to energize throughout the morning, as these are rich in vitamins B, vitamin E, potassium, and zinc, which help the brain and body to function at its optimum levels. Where to find: Look for old style rolled oats, organic and non GMO.

Yoghurt: There is a link between Gut and Brain, if gut working well the Brain working well too. Gut health based on probiotics and prebiotics, so introducing to you child every day portion of coconut yoghurt full of probiotics is very good idea. Where to find: Coconut yoghurt for someone who believes in inflammatory dairy, or organic dairy Greek yoghurt.

Vegetables, Fruits and greens: prebiotics are of type of non-digestible fiber compound, which we can find in fresh vegetables and fruits, all kind of greens like Kale, spinach, bok choy.. Antioxidants from fresh products help as they are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which minimize the cell damage that may lead to disease. Nutrients work best in your body when you get them the natural way: in the amounts found in foods and balanced with other nutrients. Super green veggies help fight disease as they are high in nutrients including vitamins C, E, and A, and calcium. They are also loaded with magnesium and potassium. Where to find: All colour veggies and fruits, green salads and leaves.

Berries: Diets rich in berries significantly improved both the learning capacity and motor skills. Researchers have found that blueberries help protect the brain. Where to find: Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, red, purple, blue grapes.

Dark Raw Chocolate (without sugar and dairy): has powerful antioxidant properties, contains several natural stimulants, including caffeine (good for kids in moderation), which enhance focus and concentration and stimulates the production of endorphins, which helps improve mood. Where to find: Raw organic dairy free chocolate.

Healthy kids = happy smart kids. Have a productive year!
