Imagine how your child would feel if you gave him something he loves for his birthday. That would just make his day, wouldn’t it? Well, that is how his brain would be too if he gives it what it loves every day. His brain will be so happy it will be tuned up and ready to absorb whatever he learns in school, just like a sponge!
So what makes his brain feel more efficient? Foods that are packed with Omega-3’s essential fatty acids. These are critical for brain function. One experiment (Yehuda, S. 2005) found that taking a combination of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids reduced test anxiety in students and improved their mental concentration.
Some foods that are a great source of Omega-3 fats are salmon, tuna (make sure your tuna is mercury free though), walnuts, and seeds.
There is a seed called Mila - a proprietary blend of the popular super food Chia Seeds, whose plant-based source of Omega-3 is off the charts!
Flax Seeds are also good. In addition to the rich Omega-3 content, these are also a great source of fiber (to help your child go to the toilet easily and keep your bowels movement healthy). Ground Flax Seeds or Flax Seed Oil are other forms which also helps those who suffer from dry eyes.
Here is a simple recipe that uses Ground Flax Seeds to boost your child's brain.
Blend all these until smooth: 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 1 cup of Almond Milk or Organic Coconut Milk, 1 Banana + 1 Peach, Ground Flax Seeds, and Raw Honey.
