Salmon
Salmon is a terrific source of protein and essential fatty acids. Salmon will help your child’s brain and central nervous system to develop. All you have to do is squeeze some lemon on a fillet and pop under the grill. Serve with lots of leafy greens for a nutritious, brain boosting meal.

Sweet potatoes 
For a healthy and nutritious snack, chop a sweet potato into medium thin wedges, sprinkle with cinnamon and a little olive oil and roast in the oven. Sweet potatoes are loaded with antioxidants and vitamin A and help to stimulate the production of new neurons.

Eggs
Start the day with scrambled or boiled eggs and your kids will easily remember their twelve times table! Egg yolks are an excellent source of choline, which is great for memory and an important nutrient for children.

Blueberries and strawberries
Kids will love berries particularly in smoothies with yoghurt or eaten as a snack. They are full of antioxidants and they also increase cognition and memory which will help get your child through maths class with clear, focused thinking!

Beans
Beans are a terrific source of omega-3 fatty acids which helps to maintain the vessels in the brain. Add them to a salad, cook up some chilli or serve them mashed instead of potatoes.
