 We here at The Tutoring Center in Honolulu recently offered a few suggestions for brain-boosting superfoods to include in your child’s diet. That was by no means a complete list, though, so today we would like to give you a few more ideas for foods that will help your child develop both physically and mentally.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal should be a breakfast staple, as it’s low glycemic index means it releases glucose slowly over a long period of time, meaning stable energy for your child throughout the day. It’s also a fairly good source of protein (necessary not just for growing muscles but for growing brain cells too) but you can boost the protein in your child’s breakfast by cooking their oatmeal with milk and/or yogurt.

Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a far healthier alternative to your ordinary potato. They’re brimming with vitamins A, C, and E, and are packed with antioxidants, too. Sweet potatoes can be switched in for potatoes in virtually any recipe; try making sweet potato wedges instead of potato fries, or enjoy a baked sweet potato with tuna salad for a delicious dinner.

Eggs

Eggs received some bad press in recent decades, as they were believed to be high in cholesterol. Recent research has shown that this was entirely backward; eggs in fact help to reduce levels of LDL, or ‘bad’ cholesterol, in the bloodstream! Not only that, but they are also a tremendous source of protein, omega 3 fatty acids, and a substance called choline which has been found to be vital in good brain health. Perhaps the best thing about eggs is their versatility; if your child doesn’t like scrambled eggs, see if they’d like a boiled egg to dip their toast in.

Whole grains

Switching out refined products like white bread and pasta for their whole wheat alternatives is an easy way to provide a nutrition boost to your child’s diet. Whole grains are richer in protein, fiber, and vitamins than their processed kin, and we think they’re tastier too!

Of course, providing a good diet is just one way in which you can help your child prosper. If you feel you child is struggling with their reading, math, or any other academic area, hiring a tutor to provide targeted support may be the answer.
