Smart shopping top tip
To help maintain your child’s concentration and energy levels there are three shopping rules. Follow them and it will be hard to go wrong.
- Buy food with slow releasing sugars
Such as oats, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, vegetables excluding potatoes and parsnips, quinoa and lentils.
- Buy essential brain-boosting fats
Found in oily fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel or in seeds.
- Buy more fruits and vegetables
Packed with IQ boosting vitamins and minerals.
It needn’t be expensive, a bag of oats is four times cheaper than the same weight of sugar-coated cornflakes, and will fill you up four times longer.
