For a number of years, well-known athletes of international fame from the Olympics have designed nutritional plans and eaten highly nutritious food to enhance their athletic performance. If athletes can build their own nutritional plans to catalyze their on-field performance, is it possible for us to create such nutritional plans for our children too? Yes, it is possible to make our children eat well, so that they can enhance their learning performance. Some foods are known to help your children directly in boosting brain development as well as increase IQ and intelligence. As researchers study and understand more about different brain foods, parents also gather more information about some power brain foods that can jack up academic performance as well as a number of extra-curricular activities.

A number of brain foods that exist in the world can help build better brains and assist children with much needed focus and concentration to go through regular classroom rituals, and help sustain the required energy levels to tolerate the rigors of the playground. However, most of the so called power foods may not be your child's favorite. But, if you are willing to spend some personal time and energy to offer these foods on a regular basis, your children will soon develop a habit of eating those food items.

Eating a healthy meal is a big necessity not only to help your child grow in a normal manner, but also boost brain development and enhance creative intelligence. Have a great week ahead!

Thought for today:
"Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you." - Cynthia Kersey

Feeding the Brain: How Foods Affect Children
By C.Keith Conners

Ignore the alarmist title! A prominent neuro-psychiatrist reviews and interprets a broad spectrum of experimental scientific studies on the interaction of food and behavior in infants and children. Included are classic studies on sugar, hyperactivity and aggression, breakfast composition, artificial sweeteners, critiques of fads (the Feingold diet, and megavitamin therapy), and general issues, e.g., food allergies. Conners's "Behavior Problem Checklist" integrates research with practice, providing parents with specific at-home procedures for evaluating and improving food-behavior effects.

News Day Aug 19, 2008

It is an established fact that children can hear before birth and long before their brains are fully developed. So much so, that they are able to recognize their father’s voice and will turn towards it at birth. Baby’s brain cells start multiplying and start making connections before birth and at this time they become a captive audience for stories, music, nursery rhymes and expressions of love before birth. These are all necessary for the beginning reading.
