5 Super Foods That can Sharpen Child's Focus and Memory




Including right kind of food in the diet of children is a must to boost their focus and memory. Read on to learn about the 5 super foods that can help to sharpen your child’s focus and memory.


Ever increasing academic pressure and hectic study schedules stress children’s brains these days. Children are capable of coping with their studies only up to a point. Back to back classes, extra activities, tuitions all leave them exhausted and out of focus.

As a parent it is normal that you would want to do something to help your child retain their lessons and not lose focus. Losing focus is too easy these days because of distractions in the form video games, social networks and television. Research has shown that there are some super foods that enhances your child’s concentration powers and help them stay focus and retain their studies.

1. Banana

Time and again scientists and nutritionists have been eloquent about the beneficial qualities of banana. They have energy increasing carbohydrates that supply the much needed strength to your child’s brain when they are doing their lessons.

The cause for children’s lack of concentration is the fact that their brains get tired and they lose their powers of concentration. Eating a banana each day in place of some sugary or oily snack is not only a healthy alternative but keeps your child’s brain active through the day. It aids them to concentrate in class.

2. Eggs

Egg seems to top the super food list because of the huge amount of nutrients it contains. Protein, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E and B12 contained in the egg help in brain’s retention power. The yellow yolk of the egg has lecithin which is extremely good for the brain. It aids concentration and memory and the iron in the egg keeps the brain healthy and helps in proper functioning. Try to incorporate at least one egg in your child’s daily diet.

3. Cereal

Believe it or not, the breakfast cereal which you assumed to be a mere healthy alternative actually has nutrients that aid the brain. Give your child a bowl of cereal in the morning instead. Cereals like cornflakes, muesli, porridge and granola are rich in fiber and vitamins that are important for the brain. They keep the brain active and energetic even if your child is doing his lessons late into the night. Avoid the breakfast cereals that are sugar based, they do not aid in anyway and are rather harmful for your child.

4. Cheese

Yes, you read it right, cheese. This delicious milk product is enormously good for your child’s brain. Your children will not be harmed if they eat cheese, rather their body needs the fat cheese provides. Including cheese in their diet will actually make them perform well. Cheese has proteins and calcium that enhance their power of concentration. The energy derived from cheese makes the brain active.

5. Kiwi

Kiwi is better than your regular fruits, especially during exams. It contains double the amount of vitamin C as an orange and helps the body to absorb more iron. Iron in turn is essential for your child’s busy brain. Make sure that they eat at least one kiwi fruit a day during periods when they need to study more. Your child will have no trouble remembering all the formulas, equations or quotes.

The vitamin C from the kiwi will also give them immunity so that they do not frequently fall sick. Generally, during exams or periods of high stress the body’s immunity is weakened. Kiwi strengthens it.

Try feeding all the above super foods to your child on a daily basis to keep them focused and aid their retention capacity. Switch these healthy options for the fatty and sugary stuff they tend to consume during exam time.
