Your brain is an involuntary organ; it works whether you want it or not. However, it gets tired with overwork like any other organ, and it needs fuel to keep working.
Children in their growing age must fuel their brain while studying or preparing for exams.
What is the best fuel for your brain?
Here are the best foods to consume while studying:
Your child would never resist it. And maybe it will motivate them to study more! Cocoa beans have the highest level of flavonoids. Therefore, your brain benefits from all types of Cocoa products because flavonoids in them enter the brain crossing the surrounding semipermeable membrane and energize the brain to memorize and focus better.
Nuts help your child to have a healthy brain because they are packed with Zinc, omega three fatty acids, and vitamin E. Keep a bowl full of mixed almonds, cashew nuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, coconut slices, and add some raisins, dry apricots with them for a sweet tinge.
Berries are anthocyanin-rich little fruits that do great good to your child’s brain. They improve blood flow to the brain, protect it against inflammation, and promote nerve cell production. You can keep a fresh supply of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries on your child’s table or make a smoothie of his/her choice.
Eggs are a complete package of nutrition. Your child must take an egg in the breakfast and increase the intake during exams and studies. Egg sandwiches are an ideal snack during studies.
Fish is an excellent resource of selenium and vitamin B 12, improving brain health and sharpening memory.
Avocado is a gift of nature as it is packed with a wide array of nutrients like magnesium, potassium, folate, niacin, vitamin C, vitamin B2, B3, B5, and B6. An avocado during long hours of study is a mega brain booster.
Red, green, orange, purple, and yellow vegetables are great for keeping the eyesight sharp and brain strong. For example, a plate of sliced carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, beets, and purple cabbage is excellent brain food. However, offer it on the table with the meals because children often do not snack on them while studying.
Stock your refrigerator and cellar with the above foods today. Then, your child would perform great in his/her exams!
