The best food to help your kid achieve that A+

What if someone told you at the beginning of the year that in a few months you will be home with your family for 7-8 weeks, what would your reaction be? They would tell you that moms would have to play the role of caretaker, domestic worker, working mommy, chef, entertainer, peace maker and be responsible for the sanity of your family. Dad would stay at home, bound to his home office, taking endless calls and attending loads of virtual meetings. Your kids would celebrate their birthdays without any friends or family around and you would most certainly have to think outside the box. If you heard someone tell you that you would laugh at them and say, “Okay, tell me your next joke”.

Unfortunately, this is our new reality, changing the way we used to do things, creating a new routine for your family and getting used to our new normal.

Some kids have found their way back to school, without a doubt this is a very stressful time for them. The uncertainty they will face daily, the new school rules they would have to get used to, not to mention trying to get their schoolwork back on track.

To help our super mom’s, here are a few ideas for food items that you can stock up on as these foods are described as the best brain foods. These items will help your kid get that A+ they so badly want and help them concentrate and remember all the details.

By now you have most probably emptied all the kitchen cabinets even the places where you would hide the family favourites, all snacks are devoured, and freezers are empty.

1. Blueberries

Not only do these little blue superfoods protect against cancer, heart disease and dementia, they are also proven to boost concentration and memory. Blueberries contain antioxidants that stimulate the blood circulation and oxygen to the brain. These little guys will help you focus throughout your most boring readings, so grab a handful and books!

2. Green Tea

Green tea contains a very important ingredient which is known to increase tranquillity and release caffeine more slowly into your body. Because the caffeine doesn't hit you all at once, you won't feel jittery, instead you'll notice a mild, stable increase of energy. Just the right amount to get you through a long night of studying!

3. Dark Chocolate
