Top 10 Brain Foods for Children.

Want your child to do better in school? Take a close look at diet. Certain “brain foods” may help boost a child”s brain growth — plus improve brain function, memory, and concentration.

In fact, the brain is a very hungry organ — the first of the body's organs to absorb nutrients from the food we eat, explains Bethany Thayer, MS, RD, a Detroit nutritionist and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association (ADA).

“Give the body junk food, and the brain is certainly going to suffer,” she tells WebMD.

  • I read your Live Fit and Sore article in the Ashburn Villager and it says to visit the web site and I wanted to offer a blo, but I honestly can’t find where you blog. Web site is a bit too busy.
