From birth, your child grows quickly both physically and mentally. Balanced nutrition is essential to ensuring that your child is ready to learn, grow and achieve. Here are some of the top foods for boosting brain development:

  • Omega-3: Found in oily fish like salmon and tuna, as well as in avocados and walnuts. Omega-3s have been linked to improved concentration and academic performance.
     
  • Whole-grains: Whole-grain bread and pasta are delicious and good for brain development. Rich in Vitamin B, this complex carbohydrate gives the brain a steady supply of fuel while enhancing memory and recall abilities.
     
  • Antioxidants: Found in blueberries, strawberries and most other brightly colored fruits and vegetables, antioxidants are essential for brain health. Studies have also linked blueberries, in particular, to faster learning and improved memory skills.
     
  • Vitamin B12: Found in lean red meat as well as tofu, milk and cheese, this vitamin helps keep up energy levels, essential for a learning brain. In addition, a deficiency in this vitamin can cause fatigue.
     
  • Choline: Found in eggs (especially the yolks), broccoli and cauliflower, choline is essential for the growth of new brain cells and neural connections. Broccoli is also high in Vitamin K, a nutrient linked to boosting cognition.

Located in nearby Hamilton, Brown’s Family Farm Market is a great resource for parents who want a steady supply of seasonal, locally grown, and tasty produce. Take your child with you on these shopping trips since there are hayrides, a great play area and a picnic area for families to enjoy.
