Protein sources can be a whey protein shake or a healthy yogurt with fat. Both provide 20 grams of high quality protein. Protein provides the body with amino acids which are converted into brain neurotransmitters and great for the immune system.
No coffee for kids, they aren’t adults!
Foods for Lunch
- Put protein in their lunch! Yogurt is power-packed with healthy protein; very low sugar content (natural-occurring).
- Give them a bag of berries or apples slices. You can cut the apples to look like French Fries. This gives your kids energy and blueberries offer neuroprotection and normalize blood sugar.
- Use gluten-free bread instead of white bread. Kids don’t need refined sugar, it will prevent them from being at their mental best!
- Water is best as a beverage.
- No white bread!
- No candy!
- No junk food such as Twinkies, Ding Dongs (this could make you kid a ding dong with their grades), M&M’s, Skittles, Kit Kats, etc. You get the picture.
- No fast food driver-thru meals. They lack nutrition and damage the gastrointestinal tract.
- No caffeine-enhanced energy drinks. Hyper kids are labeled hyperactive and the wrong diet could lead them to be placed on Ritalen.
Give your kid an apple, more berries, homemade guacamole with gluten free chips or healthy yogurt. Be creative and let your kids be a part of their healthy decisions. Low blood sugar in children leads to irritability, and lack of focus during the time they should be doing homework. Homework is best right after school, and then go play. Get your kids outside and let them play! Exercising or playing outside is great for mental and immune system health.
Kids need to get to bed at a decent hour to allow enough time for their bodies to regenerate and recharge for the next healthy day!
