J&D Ultracare values the health of kids across the world. That’s why our nurses have been taking care of children as patients since 1985. However, we want to help people outside of our location in the Hudson Valley. That’s why we’ve also written countless blog posts about children’s health on our website.
One of our most recent blog posts was called “Five Tips to Get Your Kids Eating Healthy.” It’s a great post that provides some helpful tips to get your kids to have better eating habits. For example, one of the tips included having healthy foods in reach. If kids see a fruit bowl instead of a bag of chips, they are more likely to eat the fruit than seek out chips that are not in plain sight.
However, we didn’t get to talk about the best types of foods to eat, which is exactly what we want to go over in this post! There’s a fantastic article written by Mom Junction called “Top 10 Foods To Boost Your Kid’s Brain Power”. The article goes into detail about different kinds of foods that are vital to the development of children and their intelligence. We’re going to go over five of these ten foods, but if you want to learn more, we encourage you to read the full article by clicking here. Otherwise, here’s an excerpt from the article:
Green leafy veggies like spinach and kale are rich in folate and vitamins, which are linked to brain growth. Your kid may hate these for all the reasons, but you must find ways to sneak these to your kid’s meals. Add it to your kid’s omelettes, wraps and rolls with lettuce and tomatoes.
Yogurt is a great source of vitamin B and proteins, which improve the function and growth of brain tissues. They also contain probiotic bacteria that improve digestive health. A cup of yogurt, blended with some fresh berries makes for a quick and yummy smoothie.
Eggs are a rich source of protein, and also contain good amounts of choline; a nutrient that is necessary for the proper function and development of the brain. One of the best facts is that eggs are extremely versatile. Add them to sandwiches, wraps and salads, and you’re done!
Fish is also considered best food for brain development in children. Fishes like salmon, sardines and tuna are a rich source of vitamin D and omega 3 fatty acids. Both the nutrients are responsible to protect the brain against memory loss and age related memory decline. Omega 3 fatty acids also give your kid’s immunity a boost, so make sure you include at least 2-3 servings of this one every week.
- Kidney Beans
Kidney beans are thought to be great for those affected by asthma, and serve as a good source of protein for vegetarians. Consumption of kidney beans is believed to boost memory and prevent many lifestyle related disorders.
