Set 1 The Mega Memory Power Boost
Preparing for Tests and Exams
During exam time, it is very important to boost your child’s performance with superfoods to stimulate cognitive function and enhance memory. There is a lot of controversy about the benefits or even existence of superfoods. Science has however proven that ‘superfoods’ like the ones listed contains extra amounts of nutrients essential for DNA repair and growth. They can, therefore, protect you from certain diseases more than non-superfoods.
Natural vitamin supplements such as the allergen-free SmartyPants Multivitamin range with omega-3 fish oil certainly have a place in providing essential nutrients. However, nothing beats the health benefits of natural and unchanged vitamins and minerals found in fresh foods to boost brain power. The nutrients in natural superfoods are more easily absorbed than those found in supplements. During exam time, plan all your meals to include at least two of these superfoods daily to help your child prepare and excel. There is no logic in consuming huge amounts of superfoods as our bodies are designed to only absorb essential nutrients as needed. Following a balanced diet including lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and limited amounts of animal proteins remains key.
Best Brain SuperFood Power for Memory and Concentration with Healthy Snack and Meal Ideas for Kids
Cinnamon is a great superfood that is not expensive and easy to find in local stores. It boosts cognitive function and stimulates memory. My kids are always looking for something to snack on when they take a break from learning. Therefore, I make sure to fill an airtight glass jar with baked apple chips with a cinnamon sprinkle. This snack is not only healthy but will boost their brain function at the same time.
One of my favorite ways to increase their cinnamon intake is serving pancakes with cinnamon sugar. You will boost their immune systems further when replacing the oil in the recipe with coconut oil. The combination of coconut oil and cinnamon ensures a double boost for better memory power as well as keeping them healthy. Breakfast will be super fun with these cinnamon sugar breakfast bunnies or scrumptious cinnamon vanilla baked French toast. Read below to learn the additional value of adding vanilla to family meals.
A great exam-time snack to keep the kids mentally alert is walnuts. Roast and lightly salt them and have kids grab and eat it in between studying sessions. If your kids don’t enjoy the taste of natural walnuts, you can add a bit of pizzazz by making a quick caramel sauce in a small saucepan with a spout on low heat and add a dash of cinnamon. Remember to replace half the amount of butter with coconut oil of course … and drizzle over the nuts.
Tuna and Salmon
Memory retention is crucial during this time and there is no better way to enhance it than by adding fresh salmon and tuna, which are filled with omega-3-fatty acids. If your kids love sushi as much as mine, this is the time to spoil them.
Seared fresh salmon fillets are one of my favorite dinner options. It takes only 5 minutes to prepare. Heat a non-stick copper frying pan, add a teaspoon each of butter and olive oil, salt the salmon lightly and flash fry both sides for 2 minutes. Yes, I love easy! My kids also enjoy these yummy tuna and potato cakes served with a tomato, avocado and celery salad.
Broccoli is one of the best superfoods to enhance memory as it is full of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and choline. Even if your kids don’t enjoy their greens, this is a time where you should insist they eat it. It is very easy to disguise the greens in one of their favorite meals. Any green leaf vegetable can be finely chopped and added to lasagna, soup or casseroles without them even knowing! You can have a look at this great post for inspiration on how to sneak veggies into meals. Another of my kids’ favorites is rainbow fritters, which I prepare by adding shredded broccoli and using wholewheat flour.
Most kids love avocado and serving lots of it will help them concentrate and memorize better. Serve it in a salad, on sandwiches or as guacamole. To really treat the kids serve the guacamole in the shape of a crocodile or inside a silly face bowl!
This might come as a bit of a surprise since saffron is not widely used. But it certainly should be as it has brilliant superfood power. Saffron promotes learning and also ensures visual health for both kids and adults. The best way to ingest this valuable spice is adding small amounts to meals that the kids enjoy, like vegetable risotto and meatballs with saffron rice. You will be amazed at the brilliant flavor saffron adds to your recipes. My kitchen is rarely without this awesome superfood stored in an airtight spice container to keep all the goodness locked inside.
Kids need mental alertness just as much as quality sleep. Make sure they get enough hours of sleep and try to enhance the quality by offering a glass of milk about 90 minutes before bedtime. Milk contains high amounts of tryptophan necessary for sound sleep.
To flavor the milk and supercharge it with a mental boosting ingredient, warm the milk slowly with a vanilla pod. Slice the pod lengthwise carefully with a sharp paring knife to remove the seeds. Add the seeds and the pod to the milk and warm on low heat in a non-stick milk pan for about 5 minutes. If preferred, add a small amount of sugar or honey. Just to make sure they drink every last drop, serve it in a magical rainbow color changing unicorn mug! They will sleep soundly and awake brightly! Another easy way of adding vanilla is by serving a vanilla, coconut smoothie or homemade vanilla bean ice cream.
