Brain food for kids
Great article, but a quick rundown here:
Blueberries, blackberries, Raspberries, dark cherries, mulberries, and goji berries are other superstars in this category.
Plums fresh or dried (prunes); Chia seeds and raw cacao—the ingredient in dark chocolate—also contain tryptophan.
Sweet potatoes and dark leafy greens.
Fish; while cod and tilapia have fatty acids, if you can, “focus on cold-water fatty fish. Some of the most DHA-rich fish are salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines, and herring, easily remembered with the acronym SMASH.” Make an elevated fish stick: “First dip a fish filet in a bowl of egg, then into a bowl of finely crushed pistachios, almonds, breadcrumbs, and salt. Finish by sautéing in coconut or extra virgin olive oil.”
