Top Brain Foods for Students
Posted by Hotze Vitamins on 8/27/2014 to Gluten Free

This week we have been talking about the best nutrients to help our students thrive in the academic world.  The brain is the most nutrient-dependent organ in the body and each day needs a ready supply of all the proteins, healthy fats, low glycemic carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to encourage focus, memory, concentration and good behavior.

With the busy lives modern Americans lead, both children and adults are turning to fast food options or cheap, processed foods to feed the family. These are the high glycemic and trans fat-filled foods causing the obesity and chronic disease epidemic in both adults and children alike.  As parents, we must begin by modeling the healthy changes. This school year, make it a goal to begin replacing the sodas and junk foods with a fridge and pantry full of better options. 

Best Foods with the Highest Nutrient Content for Kids:

·         Avocados – healthy fats

·         Fish – wild salmon is a great choice!

·         Berries – highest antioxidant fruit

·         Broccoli – add cheese if necessary

·         Whey Protein – an easy protein to digest and great for smoothies

·         Eggs – the yolk of an egg is like a multi-vitamin in a food

·         Sweet potatoes – even sweet potato fries will work (baked, not fried)

·         Grass-Fed Beef – beef has nutrients that are missing in other proteins and healthy fats, but keep it lean

·         Almond Butter – healthy fats, proteins and magnesium

·         Beans – good for energy and fiber

 

Creative packed lunch ideas for you and the family: 

·         Avocado, Turkey and Tomato Sandwich on Sprouted Bread

·         Homemade Lunch Kits (cheese, non-nitrate lunch meat, and gluten free crackers)

·         Celery and Peanut Butter or Almond Butter

·         Apples and Peanut Butter or Almond Butter

·         Healthy Trail Mix

·         Raw Veggies with Guacamole or Hummus

·         Cottage Cheese with Fresh Fruit

·         Roasted or Raw Nuts (avoid oils added)

·         Greek Yogurt

·         Paleo Bars

·         Cinnamon Apple Sauce (no sugar added)

·         Fresh Fruit and Cheese

No diet is perfect in today’s busy times and children need more nutrients than ever to combat the toxins, stress, and poor food quality that we now face.  Do you feel your child could be more nourished?  Or that he or she struggles with focus, mood and concentration?  Poor behavior?  Nutrient deficiencies may be to blame.  The new Hotze StudyPak provides a powerful combination of brain food and specific nutrients to support brain health.

I love this idea!! Unfortunately, now days most schools are peanut and tree nut free. So almond butter, peanuts, peanut butter, nuts etc., you are not allowed to bring to school. We have attended both private and public schools. The only butter I am allowed to bring to my sons school is sunbutter, sunflower seed butter. Just thought you all would want to know so you can adjust your website for lunch ideas for kids!! It's such a great idea! Thanks again! Margaret lane P.S. I love the Hotze family!

Hi Margaret, you are right about the peanut butter. Sunflower butter or cashew butter are really amazing for kids too and taste good. Thanks for the support! Our little ones need good nutrition.
