Diet that Improves Memory, Cognition: Eat a Brain-Boosting Diet
Just as the body needs fuel, so does the brain. Diet based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and “healthy” fats will not only provide lots of health benefits, but also can improve memory. The following nutritional tips will help boost your child’s brainpower:
Evidence indicates that omega-3 fatty acids are particularly beneficial for brain health. Fish is a rich source of omega-3, especially cold water “fatty fish” such as salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines. Other non-fish sources of omega-3s include walnuts, ground flaxseed oil, pumpkin seeds.
Make your child eat more fruits and vegetables which are packed with antioxidants (substances that protect your brain cells from damage).
Include grape juice in the diet, as it is rich in resveratrol, a flavonoid that boosts blood flow in the brain.
