The Unsurpassed Superfood Power Series
A practical superfoods series for brain health and easy to implement in your day-to-day family life.
As a parent and physician, I want to help my kids learn and boost their brain power and performance at school. To have an easy reference, I created the superfoods series.
We use these memory-boosting superfoods daily to support their physical and mental demands. And, knowing the difference it makes to my kids performance, I had to also share it with you.
How to use the superfoods series
The superfoods series is divided into sets. Each one designed to suggest the best natural superfoods during different times of high demand.
This post is dedicated to memory boosting superfoods.
And, I strongly recommend
you add at least two of each superfood group to your kids’ daily diet.
Add the superfoods for brain health as part of a healthy meal plan to boost brain performance.

What are superfoods
Research has proven that superfoods, like the ones listed below, contains extra amounts of nutrients.
These nutrients are essential for DNA repair and growth.
They can, therefore, protect you from certain diseases or support times of high demand. More so than non-superfoods.
In case you were wondering:
whether natural vitamin supplements
- like allergen-free SmartyPants Multivitamin range with omega-3 fish oil
have a place in providing essential nutrients?
The answer is yes, it certainly does.
However, nothing beats the super health benefits of
- natural and
- unchanged vitamins and minerals
- found in fresh foods
Why fresh foods are more super
The nutrients in natural superfoods are
- more easily absorbed than those found in supplements.
A good idea during exam time is to plan meals
- to include at least two of these superfoods daily
- to help your child prepare and excel
- improving memory and focus with brain foods
The bottom line is though
There is no logic in consuming huge amounts of superfoods.
It is simple. Our bodies are designed to only absorb essential nutrients as needed.
The key to a balanced diet
- include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and
- limited amounts of animal proteins
Why should you eat superfoods
During exam time, it is very important to boost your child’s performance with superfoods.
The benefits of including brain food for kids
- to stimulate cognitive function and
- enhance memory
This is a great collection of references supporting the benefits of superfoods.
Wondering how superfoods actually support brain health?
Certain foods are classified as superfoods because they contain
- certain nutrients
- supporting brain development and memory
- protecting the brain from damage
These are the constituents and benefits of brain foods for kids.

Another one of my favorite ways to add some cinnamon to our diet
Boost their immune systems further by replacing the oil in the recipe with coconut oil.
Why choose coconut oil?
The combination of coconut oil and cinnamon ensures a double boost for boosting memory power, as well as keeping them healthy.
Breakfast is also transformed into a super fun meal

A great exam-time snack to keep the kids mentally alert is walnuts.
Roast and lightly salt them and have kids eat it in between studying sessions.
If your kids don’t enjoy the taste of natural walnuts:
- add a bit of pizzazz by making a quick caramel sauce
- easily done in a small saucepan with a spout on low heat
- and add a dash of cinnamon
- then drizzle over the nuts
Remember to replace half the amount of butter with coconut oil of course …
Memory retention is crucial during exam time. And, there is no better way to enhance it than by adding fresh salmon and tuna.
Fish like tuna and salmon are filled with omega-3-fatty acids:
an important antioxidant for brain health.
If your kids love sushi as much as mine:

- let them have fun making it themselves!
Great dinner options
Seared fresh salmon fillets are one of my favorite meals.
- it takes only 5 minutes to prepare!
Here’s how to do it
- heat a non-stick copper frying pan
- add a teaspoon each of butter and olive oil
- then 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

Broccoli is one of the best superfoods to enhance memory as it is filled with:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin K and
Super nutrients for mega memory and concentration
Even if your kids don’t enjoy their greens:
- this is a time where you should be innovative and
- make sure they eat their veggies
Disguise the greens in one of their favorite meals:
Another of my kids’ favorites
I prepare them by adding shredded broccoli and using wholewheat flour.
Most kids love avocado and serving lots of it will help them
- concentrate and
- memorize better.
- As part of a delicious salad
- on sandwiches or
- as guacamole or dip
Add some extra fun
This might come as a bit of a surprise since saffron is not widely used.

The best way to ingest this valuable spice is by adding small amounts to meals kids enjoy, like:

Kids need mental alertness just as much as quality sleep.
Make sure they get enough hours of sleep and enhance the quality:
by offering a glass of milk about 90 minutes before bedtime.
Why you want to serve milk at bedtime
Milk contains high amounts of tryptophan essential for sound sleep.
Flavor milk and supercharge it with a mental boosting ingredient:
- pour milk in a non-stick milk pan
- slice a vanilla 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 for about 5 minutes
- adding a small amount of sugar or honey
- serving it in a magical rainbow color changing unicorn mug!

They will sleep soundly and awake brightly!
