food for the brain

Championing optimum nutrition for the mind

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.
